Abstract

The B-Lynch brace suture technique is a life-saving procedure. It is a simple and safe alternative to hysterectomy. Thus, it preserves fertility with less surgical morbidity. In this case series, we evaluated the use of a novel modification of the B-Lynch brace suture to minimise its potential reported complications. Five women with intractable primary atonic postpartum haemorrhage were reported. They were initially managed with bilateral uterine artery ligation. The procedure was resorted to women who did not respond to ligation. The procedure is efficient. Women were followed up for up to 24 months to report any complications.
