From January 1, 1979, to March 31, 1980, 20 sterilization‐attributable deaths were identified in Dacca and Rajshahi Divisions, Bangladesh. The leading cause of death from tubectomy was anesthesia overdose and from vasectomy, scrotal infection. Overall, the sterilization‐attributable death‐to‐case rate was 21.3 deaths/100,000 procedures. The health impact of contraceptive sterilization is highly favorable: for each 100,000 tubectomies performed, the cost in lives (19) is offset by approximately… Expand

TLDR
Between 1973 and 1988, A VSC supported 1 516 478 female sterilizations and 401 856 vasectomies in 50 countries, where anesthesia (local and general), surgical technique (minilaparotomy and laparoscopy) and timing of the procedure (interval and postpartum) vary substantially. Expand

TLDR
The characteristics most frequently associated with the reported fatal procedures were: interval sterilizations, minilaparotomy incision, tubal ligation and general anesthesia. Expand
Mortality associated with sterilization: Preliminary results of an international collaborative observational study
Sterilization is the contraceptive method most widely used worldwide, yet the case‐fatality rate of deaths attributable to sterilization is not known. We used data collected from 1971–1979 from 28Expand
Decision analysis for assessing the impact of female sterilization in Bangladesh.
TLDR
The comparison indicates that the current program results in fewer deaths and pregnancies than would have been expected, and the number of pregnancies and deaths among the 159,000 sterilized women in the two years after sterilization is estimated. Expand

Potential demand for voluntary female sterilization in the 1980s: the compelling need for a nonsurgical method.
TLDR
In the author's view, minilaparotomy is the safest procedure, especially when performed by less specialized junior physicians and in rural areas, and has the potential to meet estimated developing country needs and also to be widely used in developed countries. Expand

TLDR
This paper provides guidelines so that clinicians may better conduct and evaluate studies of FS techniques and describes the three main study designs for FS studies--clinical trial, cohort and case-control. Expand

TLDR
No differences in demographic characteristics or long‐term satisfaction were observed between urban and rural clients or by the type of center where the tubectomies were performed, and 90% of the patients stated that they were satisfied with the tubectomy. Expand
Maternal mortality in rural Bangladesh.
TLDR
In rural Bangladesh the maternal mortality rates were found to be 7.7 and 5.7 deaths/1000 live births, and at high risk to maternal mortality were high-parity women and especially primigravida women. Expand
Voluntary sterilization: world's leading contraceptive method.
TLDR
Surgical sterilization offers many advantages over other contraceptive methods: for couples desiring no more children it is the most effective contraceptive method available and it is extremely cost-effective if the procedures cost is amortized over the couples remaining reproductive years. Expand
TUBECTOMY BY PARAPROFESSIONAL SURGEONS IN RURAL BANGLADESH
TLDR
Of 600 tubectomies carried out in three centres, 366 were performed by female paraprofesional workers with an average of only two months' part-time training in tubectomy surgerym, and the infection-rate was 5-5%; in those performed by physicians it was 6-4%. Expand
Environment, temperature and death rates.
TLDR
It is postulated that there is probably causal relationship between temperature change and deaths from a wide variety of diseases, probably a failure of autonomic control of body temperature in the elderly leading to a change in body temperature and some humoral change which in turn leads to death.
