Objective: To compare the efficacy and safety of rectal misoprostol with intrauterine misoprostol in the reduction of blood loss during and after cesarean delivery.

Methods: Ninety-eight pregnant women, all candidates for elective cesarean delivery, were equally randomized into two groups: the rectal group (received preoperative misoprostol rectally) and the intrauterine group (received intrauterine misoprostol after the delivery of the placenta). The primary outcome was the estimated blood loss (EBL) during cesarean delivery. Secondary outcomes included the occurrence of excessive blood loss (>1000 mL) within the first 24 hours postoperatively and the occurrence of any maternal or fetal side effects.

Results: There were no statistically significant differences between the two groups regarding either the EBL (693.12 ± 139.09 vs 692.39 ± 132.83; P=0.979) or the occurrence of postpartum hemorrhage (>1000 mL) (6.1% vs 4.1%; P=0.99. Apgar scores at 1 and 5 minutes were significantly higher in the intrauterine group compared to the rectal group.

Conclusion: Insertion of intrauterine misoprostol is as effective as rectal insertion in reducing blood loss during and after cesarean delivery; however, it has a safer neonatal outcome and is more convenient when administered during cesarean delivery. NCT03723031.

Alalfy modified cervical inversion technique as a tamponade in controlling PPH in placenta previa, a multicentric double blind randomized controlled trial.

Postpartum hemorrhage that occurs frequently with placenta previa is one of the causes of maternal mortality in 14% in developing countries. To assess efficacy of cervical inversion as a tamponade in controlling bed of placenta in cases of placenta previa. A prospective randomized controlled study was conducted among a total of 240 pregnant women with placenta previa (120 subjected to Alalfy modified cervical inversion technique plus hemostatic sutures and 120 was not subjected cervical inversion and only was subjected to hemostatic sutures in Obstetrics and Gynecology Department at Suez Canal University hospital, Helwan University and Algezeerah hospital for a planned cesarean section). The mean intraoperative blood loss, the intraoperative time, and the postoperative hemoglobin show a statistically significant difference between cases with placenta previa who were exposed to cervical inversion in comparison to cases that had no cervical inversion with a -value <.001. Modified cervical inversion (Alalfy technique) as a tamponade when added to hemostatic sutures to the placental bed is an easy, rapid, and efficient procedure that can decrease the amount of blood loss, time needed to stop bleeding per bed, total operative time, also it can decrease the need for blood transfusion.
