A new French survey shows that caesarean delivery is associated with an increased risk from serious problems for mother, especially for women aged 35 and over.
A survey of French Caesarea, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, was based on a larger sub-group of inspections (EPIMOMS) and compared 1,444 women who caused serious problems after delivery with a 3,464 women control group .
Researchers discussed potential effects that could affect outcomes and excluded women who had pre-discharge health problems which could cause these problems.
Twice at risk after 35 years
The study found that there was a danger to women under 35 years of age that there were problems with the delivery of Caesarean by 1.5 times higher than those who passed out. This similarity was almost twice the average for women over 35 years of age.
“These results have an impact on clinical practice and will help to determine the type of delivery, and doctors need to consider the increased risk to find out the best way to deliver, to especially to older mothers, "said the doctor. Lead author Diane Korb, commentator at Robert Debré Hospital and an epidemiologist at Inserm (Paris).
Questions about the practice of some assistants
The cesarean section's most serious problems included rebels after delivery. “Our results raise questions about the practice of some listeners who make cesarean because of their mother's advanced age, and perhaps the no other gap.
“This practice should be adapted to help avoid the risk of life-threatening women who are living at risk from the mother's mother's illness,” said Diane Korb.
