Objective: To observe and explore the clinical effect of uterine compression sutures in treating postpartum
hemorrhage. Methods: 56 patients with postpartum hemorrhage were diagnosed and treated from January 2020 to December 2022. According to the coin toss method, they were divided into the conventional group (given routine hemostatic treatment) and the research group (given uterine compression suture), with 28 cases in each group. The hemostatic efficiency, postoperative recovery time, postoperative bleeding volume, and complication rate were compared between the two groups. Results: The hemostatic efficiency of the research group was higher than that of the conventional group (P < 0.05); the hemostasis time, total hospitalization time, lochia excretion promotion time, and time for the menstrual cycle to return to normal in the research group were shorter than those of the conventional group (P < 0.05); the bleeding volume at 2 hours and 24 hours after surgery in the research group was lower than that in the conventional group (P < 0.05); the total incidence of complications such as fever, uterine adhesions, incisional bleeding, and fluid dark areas in the research group was lower than that in the conventional group (P < 0.05). Conclusion: The hemostatic effect of the uterine compression suture is accurate. It stops bleeding quickly and can significantly reduce the amount of perioperative bleeding. It can also reduce postoperative complications and speed up recovery with a specific reference value.
