Operation guide:

(1)Natural childbirth

Vaginally placed: Catheterization before placement, B-ultrasound estimation of uterine cavity volume in advance,the surgeon places the catheter into the uterine cavity under ultrasound guidance to ensure that the entire balloon is fixed above the internal os of the cervix, inject 250-300ml of sterile normal saline, up to 500ml, do not use air or carbon dioxide. An external pressure pump can be connected to observe the pressure to prevent the pressure from being too high, and an external volume bag can also be connected to evaluate the amount of bleeding. Reduction or cessation of bleeding from the drainage hole of the catheter is observed, indicating that the treatment is effective.

Intravaginal packing of an antibiotic-containing gauze roll to secure the balloon, or hang a weight of about 500g at the end of the balloon to fix the balloon.


(2) Cesarean section

Transuterine tamponade: insertion of a balloon catheter into the uterine cavity through an incision in the uterus during cesarean section, the balloon is placed in the uterine cavity, and the catheter is inserted out of the vagina. While injecting sterile water, the assistant fixed the balloon at the appropriate position by pulling the end of the vagina. It was observed that the bleeding from the discharge hole of the catheter was reduced, and the position of the catheter was fixed. The uterine incision is then closed routinely, taking care to avoid puncturing the balloon.
