C-section delivery, also known as Caesarean section, is a surgical procedure that involves making an incision in the abdomen and uterus. This procedure has changed over time, but there may be complications.
Dr Indrani SALunkhe, Consultant Gynaecologist, Wockhardt Hospital, talked about the procedure. He began by discussing how the procedure evolved through the years.
“Caesarean section is a surgery in which your baby is born through a cut that your doctor makes in the belly and uterus. Since the original procedure involved a vertical scar in the abdomen that took longer to heal, and was not cosmetic, the procedure has changed over the years. At present, doctors create a transverse scar during the procedure which is cosmetic and has a faster recovery time,” said Dr Salunkhe.
“Doctors make 2 types of scars on the uterus during a C-section. The most common incision, the transverse one, goes from side-to-side. While the vertical one goes top to bottom. A normal delivery cannot be attempted if the scar from the previous birth is not vertical. This increases the risk of scarring. Vaginal deliveries are not permitted if the caesarean scar is transverse. A woman who attempts VBAC, even with a transverse scar, is at risk of her uterine rupture. Therefore, it is advised to always discuss the pros and cons of the same with your doctor,” the expert added.
