The use of intrauterine Monsel's solution in severe hemorrhage after evacuation of retained products of conception: a case report.

Author information

Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Queen Elizabeth II Hospital, Howlands, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, UK.


This is the first reported case of the use of Monsel's solution to arrest excessive uterine bleeding after the evacuation of retained products of conception after a miscarriage. Monsel's solution impregnated into a uterine pack was used to secure hemostasis. Fertility was preserved because 7 months later the woman became pregnant and had an uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery at term. Monsel's solution can be used therefore if other conventional methods were applied unsuccessfully to stop the uterine hemorrhage.
