OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of Xuesaitong (XST) soft capsule in treating postpartum hemorrhage. METHODS: Sixty pregnant women were randomly divided into the treated group (A) and the control group (B), 30 cases in each, they were treated with XST and placebo respectively for 7 days to observe the changes of hemorrhagic conditions. RESULTS: After delivery, the hemoglobin, RBC count, hematocrit and cardiac index were lower at 3rd day than those before delivery in both groups (P<0.05 or P<0.01), reticulocyte count lowered insignificantly as compared with that before delivery in group A but significantly in control group B; the bleeding time shortened significantly in group A (P<0.05) but unchanged in group B; significant change of blood viscosity only found in group B (P<0.05). The amount of bleeding 30 min, 1 hr, 2 hrs and 24 hrs after delivery in group A was all lower than that in group B respectively (P<0.01 or P<0.05). Involution of uterus in group A at 2nd, 4th and 7th day after delivery was all better than that in group B respectively (P<0.05). CONCLUSION: XST has definite effect in decreasing postpartum hemorrhage, it also shows effects in promoting involution of uterus, reducing lochia and accelerating recovery of parturients.
