Reason Why Uterine Balloon Tamponade Is The Best


UBT is stands for uterine balloon tamponade which is innovative medical device. UBT is designed to address the challenges caregivers face to stop postpartum bleeding due to uterine atony.


Ellavi uterine balloon tamponade provides a better option that fills the gap between prohibitively expensive UBTs and condom catheter balloons assembled at point of care. Ellavi uterine balloon tamponade is fully assembled, quick to deploy, cost-effective and clinically tested. It is priced at a mere 1/20th of the cost of expensive uterine balloon tamponade produced in developed countries.


  1. Deploys Quickly:
  2. Ellavi uterine balloon tamponade(UBT) is pre-assembled, fills in under one minute, and acts swiftly to stop bleeding. UBT is easy to use and, once trained, any maternal health care provider should be able to insert it.

  3. Free-Flow System:
  4. Water moves freely between the balloon and the bag. As soon as the uterus regains its ability to contract, the water is pushed back towards the bag. This provides a visual indication of improved uterine contractility and facilitates faster balloon removal.

  5. Vertical Pressure:
  6. Simply lifting the bag allows water to fill the balloon. Adjusting the vertical height of the bag controls pressure between the balloon and the uterus. This pressure needs to be slightly higher than the blood pressure in the uterus to stop bleeding.

    Uterine balloon tamponade(UBT) has a high success rate for treating severe postpartum hemorrhage and appears to be safe. The evidence on uterine balloon tamponade(UBT) efficacy and effectiveness from randomized and nonrandomized studies is conflicting, with experimental studies suggesting no beneficial effect, in contrast with observational studies. Further research is needed to determine the most effective programmatic and healthcare delivery strategies on uterine balloon tamponade(UBT) introduction and use.
