Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is a serious obstetric problem that remains one of the leading causes of maternal deaths. The B‐Lynch brace suture and other uterine‐cavity‐obstructing sutures have been employed to control PPH over the last two decades. Owing to the reported high success rates (89–100%), the World Health Organization recommends this life‐saving procedure whenever indicated (Decherney et al. Current Diagnosis & Treatment Obstetrics & Gynecology, 12th edn; New York, NY: McGraw‐Hill, 2018).
