Rights and Permissions

Postpartum retroperitoneal or pelvic haematomas are rare after vaginal delivery. The clinical presentation can vary from being an incidental finding to the development of life-threatening bleeding. Due to their rarity, there are no established guidelines for the management of these postpartum haematomas. The reported treatments vary from watchful observation to emergent laparotomy. We report a case of postpartum pre-sacral haematoma after uneventful vaginal delivery managed successfully by laparoscopic drainage after the failure of conservative treatment.
