Maternal Morbidity After Double Balloon Catheter Management of Cesarean Scar and Cervical Pregnancies

Abstract from Obstetrics & Gynecology Journal:

“We performed a retrospective cohort study of all Type 1 cesarean scar pregnancies (n=18) or cervical pregnancies (n=5) at an academic tertiary center after treatment with a cervical double balloon catheter from 2018 to 2022 to evaluate outcomes and maternal morbidity. Cervical double balloon catheter treatment was associated with no cases (95% confidence interval 0–16%) of maternal hemorrhage treated with transfusion, hysterectomy, or ICU admission. Treatment was successfully performed by nine different obstetrics and gynecology specialists.”
