08:17 EDT 19th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Perineal body length among different racial groups in the first stage of labor."

Anatomic differences among racial groups may contribute to observed differences in the occurrence of severe perineal lacerations at the time of vaginal delivery. The purpose of this study was to identify differences in perineal body length between racial groups.
