The second method, which is more commonly used for partial retention of the membranes, is to infuse 1% povidone–iodine between the membranes and uterus and then immediately siphon it off. This can be repeated 2–3 times with small volumes (1–4 L) of fluid. If the section of membrane can be reached then it may be gently teased off the endometrium and removed. However, if it is firmly adhered then traction should be avoided as it may result in uterine inversion or tearing. • Cases of toxic metritis should be treated with broad spectrum systemic antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, anti-endotoxic drugs and intravenous fluid therapy.

Thus the inability to find a tear by this means does not preclude its presence. • Abdominocentesis should be performed in order to determine the presence and degree of peritonitis. In cases of uterine tear the peritoneal fluid contains an elevated number of red blood cells, total proteins and white blood cells, with intracellular and extracellular bacteria sometimes seen on cytological examination. • Ultrasonographic examination of the abdomen frequently reveals the presence of moderate to large volumes of free abdominal fluid.
