Abstract 1. 1. 38 per cent of all cesarean section deaths are due to infection and usually follow transperitoneal operations done upon cases which have violated certain important criteria. 2. 2. There is disagreement over the best method for delivery of the infected patient who cannot be delivered vaginally of an intact infant. The difference of opinion lies between cesarean hysterectomy, embryotomy, extraperitoneal cesarean section and transperitoneal cesarean section with local administration… Expand

Extraperitoneal cesarean section: a surgical form of infection prophylaxis?
The technique of extraperitoneal cesarean section apparently offers no significant advantage in the prevention of postcesarean endomyometritis, but the use of perioperative prophylactic antibiotics apparently has significant impact. Expand

Antibiotics and low cervical cesarian section in dystocia or intrapartum sepsis.
The low cervical cesarian section may be safely employed in the presence of sepsis. This statement is supported by 140 consecutive transperitoneal cesarian sections without a fatality in patients whoExpand

Cesarean section mortality
Abstract Laparotrachelotomy in patients with cephalopelvic disproportion can be performed with a maximum maternal mortality of 0.2 per cent as an elective operation and 0.4 per cent after a test ofExpand
Cesarean section morbidity and septic mortality in relation to the type of operation
Cesarean section performed before labor begins offers the patient the most protection against sepsis, and a reported series of extraperitoneal operations shows the death rate from all causes to be from two to five times less than theDeath rate from sepsi alone for the Porro operations performed in this city.

Supravesical extraperitoneal cesarean section.
The direct supravesical approach is by every criterion the logical one, and when combined with procedures designed to eliminate the objections to other techniques, gives an extraperitoneal operation of an ideal type. Expand
