A prospective randomized comparison of the peri-operative complications and long-term sequelae between the Filshie clip and Pomeroy methods was undertaken in 200 postpartum women at Tri-Service General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan. The peri-operative complications in either group were mild and infrequent. One pregnancy in the Pomeroy group was reported after follow-up for 24 months. No significant difference between the two groups was found in respect to long-term sequelae.
