Clinical Trial Summary

The Effect of Cesarean Operative Technique on the Occurrence of Large Hysterotomy Scar Defects.


Clinical Trial Description

Having a Caesarean leads to a scar in the uterus, which does not always heal properly. Defective healing can lead to serious complications in the next pregnancy and delivery. Different surgical techniques can be used for a Caesarean section.

The aim is to compare two surgical techniques (different ways of opening the uterus), to investigate whether one or the other technique leads to fewer defective scars in the uterus. Both these techniques are in use at the clinic. After the operation, patients are cared for in the normal way.

Six months after the Caesarean, patients are examined using vaginal ultrasound. Vaginal ultrasound allows to see if the scar after the Caesarean has healed well, or if there are defects in it.
