Manisha Kala, Nupur Hooja

Abstract


Caesarean section is the most frequently performed surgery in obstetrics. To make the scar better cosmetically, it is important to know if changing the surgical technique has an effect on wound condition postoperatively hence the study was undertaken to study the effect of different techniques of caesarean section-Misgav Ladach and Pfannensteil Kerr  on postoperative wound condition.It was a hospital based interventional study done in a tertiary care hospital .Operative details and Southampton wound grading of postoperative wound was noted and  analysed.There was greater erythema along and around the wound  on day five after the Pfannensteil Kerr method as assessed by Southampton wound grading. Also, at six weeks, the scar was better after Misgav Ladach method..Thus, it can be chosen over PK method  as the surgery is simpler, quicker  with better wound condition and shorter stay in hospital.
