Summary Objectives: to disseminate the application of a conservatory surgical technique to treat severe postpartum hemorrhage secondary to uterine atony refractory to medical treatment. Method: report on three clinical cases of uterine atony where B-Lynch suture was applied at the Pereira Rossell Hospital Center. Results: in all three cases postpartum hemorrhage was effectively controled through a conservative treatment, being there no complications during application ot the immediate puerperium. Conclusions: B-Lynch hemostatic suture is an alternative that has been widely accepted globally and it has been included in protocols for handling postpartum hemorrhage. It is an effective, simple and replicable technique that enables the preservation of the reproductive potential, particularly relevant in young patients. This is the first report on the B-Lynch technique, at the international level, accounting the application of the technique with no difficulties and an appropriate control of hemorrhage.
