Objective: Clinical experience in the management of post-abortion hemorrhage is limited.
Case reports: Two women with severe post-abortion hemorrhage were reported. One case occurred after methotrexate treatment of Cesarean scar pregnancy and the other occurred after abortion surgery. Both patients were successfully treated with a double-balloon cervical ripening catheter inducing intrauterine balloon tamponade.
Conclusion: Use of a double-balloon cervical ripening catheter either before or after systemic methotrexate treatment is one of the choices in the management of severe post-abortion hemorrhage and can prevent the use of more invasive and/or destructive procedures.
