UTEROCUTANEOUS FISTULA: A RARE COMPLICATION OF B- LYNCH SUTURE
B-Lynch suture is a compression suture used to give mechanical compression on the atonic uterus, which results in postpartum hemorrhage. B-Lynch suture helps in avoiding hysterectomy and preserve the fertility of patient. These compression sutures have few complications as well like necrosis of uterine wall, pyometra and septicemia. Here we are reporting a case of placenta previa, who underwent emergency LSCS.
