Comparison Between Modified Misgav-Ladach and Pfannenstiel-Kerr Techniques for Cesarean Section: Review of Literature

Salvatore Giovanni Vitale et al. J Prenat Med.

Abstract

In the last decades cesarean section rates increased in many countries becoming the most performed intraperitoneal surgical procedure. Despite its worldwide spread, a general consensus on the most appropriate technique to use has not yet been reached. The operative technique performed is made chiefly on the basis of the individual experience and preference of operators, the characteristics of patients, timing and urgency of intervention. We compared the two most known and used techniques, modified Misgav-Ladach and traditional Pfannenstiel-Kerr, and analyzed their impact on primary, short- and long-term outcomes and outcome related to health service use.

Keywords: Caesarean section; Joel-Cohen incision; Pfannenstiel-Kerr; modified Misgav-Ladach.
