Reduction of subacute uterine inversion by Haultain’s method: A case report
Uterine inversion is a rare but potentially life-threatening obstetric emergency of unknown aetiology, which is often associated with inadvertent traction on the umbilical cord before separation of the placenta. Here we report a case of a 26-year-old woman who presented with a day’s history of uterine inversion after an attempt to remove a retained placenta following a second-trimester miscarriage. Reduction was attempted in casualty without success and she was taken to theatre for surgical reduction under anaesthesia. Reduction was eventually achieved using the Haultain method.
