A Study of Series of Caesarean Hysterectomies for 1 Year in Tertiary Care Center, Srikakulam

Dr. D. Venkata Sai Priya | Dr. P. Revathi [5]


Abstract: This study conducted at Great Eastern Medical School & Hospital, retrospectively analyzes caesarean hysterectomies performed over one year period from April 2022 - March 2023 aiming to evaluate the reasons behind these surgeries at a tertiary care center. The research includes patients who underwent caesarean hysterectomies, focusing on those diagnosed with morbidly adherent placenta including accreta, increta, Percreta, placenta previa & fibroid complicating pregnancies, PPH. With a total of 21 cases examined, the study identified the most common cause for these procedures as uncontrolled atonic PPH, followed by morbidly adherent placenta. The incidence rate of caesarean hysterectomy was found to be 0.69 out of 858 caesarean sections performed during the study period. The findings underscore the necessity of caesarean hysterectomy as a life-saving intervention in cases of uncontrolled hemorrhage, while also highlighting the potential elective reasons for such procedures. Complications associated with these surgeries including ureteric injury & post-operative intestinal obstruction, were also documented, emphasizing the critical nature of decision - making & surgical expertise in managing such complex obstetric emergencies.
