Abstract: Perimortem cesarean is rare and one of the worst possible scenarios in obstetrics. Multidisciplinary approach and speed are extremely important. Pelvic packing in massive postpartum hemorrhages is a method which obstetricians do not commonly use. The patient who had cardiac arrest during travail was successfully managed with a peripartum hysterectomy and two different types of pelvic packing after perimortem cesarean. The mother and baby were healthily discharged. Fetal and maternal survival after perimortem cesarean is quite low. The most important factor determining survival is speed. Pelvic packing is effective in postpartum unstoppable bleeding.
Keywords: survival / perimortem cesarean / speed / extremely / pelvic packing / postpartum
