Objective: Placental implants in the cervical canal may occur result in patients with placenta previa that lead to bleeding after placental removal. Bleeding from the cervical canal can be stopped by inserting the Cook Ripening Balloon.
Case Presentation: A 31-week pregnant an was brought to the emergency clinic with a complaint of vaginal bleeding, and active vaginal bleeding was observed. Ultrasonography showed a fetus with fetal bradycardia and placenta previa. The patient underwent emergency Caesarean delivery. The placenta was easily removed without any complications. Bleeding from the cervical canal was observed by vaginal examination. The Cook Cervical Ripening Balloon was inserted into the cervical canal, and the bleeding stopped. The patient was discharged healthy.
Conclusion: Bleeding from the uterine cervix can be stopped by insertion of the Cook Cervical Ripening Balloon.
