A retrospective case-control study in order to identify obstetric variables epidemiological, clinical and associated with the likelihood of obstetric hysterectomy for uterine atony postpartum period immediately at the General Teaching "Dr. Agostinho Neto" Hospital Guantanamo between 2013 was conducted and 2014. 54 cases and 108 controls were enrolled. Univariety description was applied and multivariate logistic regression and diagnostic validity and safety is said to predict the event. Personal history of diabetes mellitus and previous postpartum bleeding had a significantly higher incidence in patients who have undergone hysterectomy for uterine atony. Diabetes mellitus, polyhydramnios, the dysfunctional labor, preeclampsia, retroplacental hematoma, chorioamnionitis and volume of bleeding during childbirth than 1000 ml represent an increased risk to suffer varying uterine atony and emergency peripartum hysterectomy (HEPP). Diabetes mellitus, chorioamnionitis and volume of bleeding during childbirth than 1000 ml HEPP were predictors of uterine atony with acceptable diagnostic validity and safety.
