|Summary: Abdominal delivery by
C-section is an obstetrical operation by means of which the foetus is
extracted through the abdominal and uterus wall of the mother and it is
performed in advanced pregnancy when the survival of the foetus is
possible. If performed on the basis of well-founded indications in modern
conditions of preoperative preparations, applied surgical technique,
anaesthesia, reanimation, transfusion, antibiotic prophylactics,
chemotherapy and postoperative supervision, the life of the mother or the
foetus or of both is often saved by C-section. There have been 2110
deliveries at the Obstetrics Ward in Zaječar over the period of three
years, 554 of which were performed by C-section (26.25%). The highest
percentage was among women who were 26-30 years of age (34.11%). As for
the parity, the largest number of them were the women with their first
child - 319 (57.6%), which is comparable with world statistics, while
there were 190 (34.3%) women with their second child. Thanks to the
progress in perinatal medicine and surgery, as regards the application of
scientific innovations and technical achievements, improved anaesthesia,
uterotonics, blood transfusion, antibiotics and surgical technique that
has been brought to perfection, as well as to the application of a low
transversal cut on the uterus, C-section is nowadays a safe surgery by
means of which a huge progress in obstetrics practice has been made.
