Postpartum hemorrhage is a major contributor to maternal morbidity and remains the leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide, in most cases appears spontaneously immediately after the childbirth, the highest percentage refers to the hypotonic uterine, which is refractory to the conventional measures such as uterine massage, oxytocin, prostaglandins etc. Guidelines for the management of postpartum hemorrhage involve gradual steps from pharmacological approaches to surgical treatment. The method of uterine tamponed using "hemostatic balls" was recently added to the arsenal of treatment of postpartum hemorrhage. There are several balls available including the Bakri balloon, Foley, Sengstaken-Blakemore, Rusch, among others. This article reviews these uterine tamponed technologies in the treatment of postpartum hemorrhage and especially the intrauterine balloon method applied in the German Urquidi's Maternity Hospital as an alternative to this complication.

Palabras clave : Postpartum hemorrhage; haemostatic ball; Mortality.
