The definition, aetiology, presentation, diagnosis and management of previous caesarean scar defects


, : The definition, aetiology, presentation, diagnosis and management of previous caesarean scar defects. Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 33(8): 759-763

Caesarean sections are the most commonly performed surgical procedures involving the uterus in fertile women. Typically, this surgery involves a transverse incision in the anterior lower uterine segment. The incidence of caesarean sections is on the increase worldwide, and consequently, the complications associated with them are becoming more common. One such complication that is gaining more attention is previous lower uterine segment caesarean scar defect (PCSD). In this review, we sought to explore the definition, aetiology, presentation, diagnosis and management of PCSD.
