Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To describe risk factors, clinical events, and avoidable factors in cases of maternal death due to bleeding during and after cesarean delivery.

METHODS: A retrospective study was undertaken of the clinical records of women who delivered in seven hospitals in Johannesburg, South Africa, between January 2013 and December 2014. Maternal deaths due to cesarean-related hemorrhage during or within 42days of cesarean delivery at 24weeks or more were selected. Case records were audited using quantitative techniques to determine the events leading up to death.
