Özet

Background/aim: Several authorities advocate the use of hypogastric artery ligation (HAL) in the treatment of cases of obstetrical hemorrhage related to uterine atony or placenta accreta. We assessed the morbidity and mortality of patients who underwent HAL as a component of emergency procedures to control life-threatening uterine bleeding in a tertiary-care university hospital.
