Postpartum hemorrhage is one of the major causes of maternal mortality and morbidity especially in the developing countries like India. It comprises of approximately 25% of maternal death worldwide. In EASY GIDEON suture, both uterine artery compressions with simultaneous anterior and posterior uterine wall compression is done to obliterate the uterine cavity hence controls the bleeding during cesarean section in lesser time.
Objective: To study the efficacy of EASY GIDEON suture in management of postpartum hemorrhage in cesarean section.
Methods: It was single-center hospital based prospective study conducted in the department of obstetrics and gynecology, PMCH. About 50 cases in which medical management failed to control PPH were selected (during Sept 2018 TO March 2020).
Result: The success rate of EASY GIDEON was seen in almost all cases in the present study. Most of them are regularly menstruating.
