  • Transvaginal ligation of the cervical branches of the uterine artery and injection of vasopressin initial in a cervical pregnancy as an step to controlling hemorrhage - A case report JOURNAL OF REPRODUCTIVE MEDICINE Davis, L. B., Lathi, R. B., Milki, A. A., Dahan, M. H. 2008; 53 (5): 365-368


    Hemorrhage from a cervical pregnancy is a time-sensitive matter. Effective temporization measures for the initial management of this hemorrhage have not previously been reported in the literature.A 43-year-old woman, gravida 0, underwent in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer. She subsequently presented to the office with sudden onset of vaginal hemorrhage due to a cervical pregnancy. Cervical artery sutures were placed, and a cervical vasoconstricting agent was injected, at which point the patient's bleeding stopped. She then underwent successful treatment with dilation and curettage.Conservative measures to manage hemorrhage due to cervical pregnancy can be initiated, with possible rapid establishment of hemostasis until definitive treatment can be achieved.
