Uterine artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare delayed complication after caesarean section
Uterine artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication after caesarean section and may be the cause of acute and potentially life-threatening secondary post-partum haemorrhage. In this case report, we present the clinical presentation and management of a case of uterine artery pseudoaneurysm manifesting as delayed post-partum bleeding after caesarean section. The case report emphasizes the importance of performing Doppler-flow when diagnosing the existence of a uterine artery pseudoaneurysm ultrasonically.
