  title={Misgav Ladach Cesarean Section vs Pfannenstiel Cesarean Section},
  author={LS Karat and Radhakrishna and Suguna},
OBJECTIVE To assess the advantages of Misgav Ladach cesarean section in comparison with routine Pfannenstiel cesarean section. METHODS Randomized controlled study was done over 15 months on 200 elective and emergency caesarean sections. RESULTS The duration of surgery, blood loss and post operative pain were sign ifican tly less in the Misgav Ladach group (P ~ .001). CONCLUSION Misgav Ladach technique of cesarean section has many advantages and should be used routinely.

A study of various cesarean section techniques at a government tertiary care centre: Misgav Ladach cesarean section versus Pfannenstiel cesarean section
The most appropriate surgical procedure is the one which takes minimum time to be complete, simplest to perform, causing least damage and least complication for the patient. Expand
The Misgav-Ladach method of cesarean section: a step forward in operative technique in obstetrics
The modified Misgav-Ladach technique is associated with a shorter operative time than Pfannenstiel–Kerr and might lead to better postoperative outcomes, and no significant differences were observed in the incidence of endometritis, wound dehiscence, bowel restitution, postoperative antibiotic use, and hospital stay.

Comparison of the Outcomes of Traditional and Mis- gav-Ladach Techniques in Caesarean Section
This study showed that Misgav-Ladach technique can be used as a substitute for traditional methods in cases of elective or emergency C-Section and had significantly smaller duration of surgery, fetal extrusion time, antibiotics use, and length of hospital stay after surgery compared to the traditional group.

A Study of Promethazine Hydrochloride and Pentazocine Intramuscular Sedation Along with 2 % Lidocaine Hydrochloride and Adrenaline and Comparison to Placebo Along with 2 % Lidocaine Hydrochloride and Adrenaline for Surgical Extraction of Mandibular Third Molar
It could be concluded that particular drugs do not have much influence on the surgical procedure in this study, but it was found that patients from group 1 were more cooperative as compared to group 2 when difficulty was encountered during the surgery. Expand


[The Misgav Ladach method for cesarean section].
The Misgav Ladach method is restrictive in the use of sharp instruments preferring manual manipulation: it gives faster recovery, shorter period to normal bowel function, less peritoneal adhesions and less scarring in the abdominal layers, less use of postoperative antibiotics, analgesics and antipyretics, and a shorter anesthetic and operative time.
