Materials and methods: Our study included 36 patients, which underwent B-Lynch suture due to PPH from 2013 to 2015. Results: Asherman's syndrome was found in 3 (8.3%) of 36 patients who participated in the study. Two patients with Asherman's syndrome had a history of placenta accreta and one patient placenta previa. Conclusion: Compared to procedures that require experiences such as hysterectomy or internal iliac artery ligation, B-Lynch suture is a high-level PPH approach that preserves fertility potential with preventing complications.
