  • The Release Trial: a randomised controlled trial of umbilical vein oxytocin versus placebo for the treatment of retained placenta [19].
  • The majority of deaths, (65%) had occurred within 24 hours of admission and in 47.5% of cases there was severe anaemia on admission; 17.5% had died due to an atonic PPH, which was the largest category, followed by ruptured uterus (15%), abruptio placenta (15%) and retained placenta (12.5%) [20].
