Postpartum sterilisation with the Filshie titanium silicone-rubber clip and subsequent pregnancy
The original publication is available at http://www.samj.org.za
Pregnancy subsequent to postpartum Filshie clip sterilisation has occurred in 8 out of 789 patients operated on at Paarl Hospital since early 1983. As most pregnancies after sterilisation occur within 2 years, more failures can be expected. The use of this method has thus been discontinued.
