Pyometra is a condition that is defined as an infection of the uterus. This condition is considered very serious and fatal. There are two types of pyometra, “open” where you can see vaginal discharge, and “closed” where there is no discharge. The second one is more dangerous. Pyometra is considered to be a “secondary” infection due to hormonal changes in the female reproductive tract.
C-section surgeries were performed in the past through the left and right uterine horns. Electrocautery was used to dissect omentum from uterine horns. The Miller knot and the Transfixing ligatures were used to ligate uterine body.
