A severed IP ligament as a cause for trans-vaginal uterine bleeding post termination of pregnancy: a case report.

Abstract Uterine perforation is an uncommon yet serious complication of surgical management of first and second trimester termination of pregnancies. The rate of uterine perforation is under reported, as patients are usually asymptomatic. Although uncommon, uterine perforation can cause life-threatening complications for some patients. This case report discusses a second trimester surgical termination resulting in uterine perforation and haemorrhage secondary to an avulsion of the infundibulopelvic ligament and prolapse of the left fallopian tube and ovary into the uterine cavity. A literature search was undertaken to compare this case report to those previously published. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report in Australia that discusses a unique case of a severed infundibulo-pelvic ligament as a cause for trans-vaginal uterine bleeding post second trimester termination of pregnancy.
