Obstetric hysterectomy and uterine rupture in the Nordic countries.
Editor’s comment: Prof. Jim Thornton: Obstetric hysterectomy and uterine rupture in the Nordic countries.
In 2009 the five Nordic countries, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland set up the Nordic Obstetric Surveillance System (NOSS) to monitor rare complications of pregnancy. In April 2015 they issued reports on abnormally invasive placenta, peripartum hysterectomy and severe blood loss at delivery. There was one maternal death among 1019 cases of the four conditions between 2009 and 2012. Over the period studied there were 605,362 births.
