Study of Different Suturing Techniques for Perineal Repair After Delivery
We wish to determine wich of two standardized suturing techniques is the best for perineal repair if a perineal laceration or an episiotomy is present after vaginal birth.
The participants are healthy primi para and deliver at term.
A randomised controlled trial with 400 participants was initiated in August 2004. The two suture techniques compared were both 2-layered and either continuous sutures or interrupted, inverted stitches to perineal muscles and the subcuticular layer. A polyglactin 910 multifilament thread on an atraumatic needle was used and the perineal skin was left unsutured. Healthy primiparas >36+0 weeks gestation could participate if they had a either a 2nd degree perineal laceration or an episiotomy.
The trial was a double-blind and analysis was done on an intention-to-treat basis. Main outcomes were pain, wound healing and patient satisfaction.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Excessive sweating. In the localized type, the most frequent sites are the palms, soles, axillae, inguinal folds, and the perineal area. Its chief cause is thought to be emotional. Generalized hyperhidrosis may be induced by a hot, humid environment, by fever, or by vigorous exercise.
The hollow thick-walled muscular organ in the female PELVIS. It consists of the fundus (the body) which is the site of EMBRYO IMPLANTATION and FETAL DEVELOPMENT. Beyond the isthmus at the perineal end of fundus, is CERVIX UTERI (the neck) opening into VAGINA. Beyond the isthmi at the upper abdominal end of fundus, are the FALLOPIAN TUBES.
An incision of the posterior vaginal wall and a portion of the pudenda which enlarges the vaginal introitus to facilitate delivery and prevent lacerations.
A technique which uses synthetic oligonucleotides to direct the cell's inherent DNA repair system to correct a mutation at a specific site in an episome or chromosome.
Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.
The purpose of this study is to determine the difference in pain scales between absorbable suture types for second-degree perineal laceration repair.

Antenatal perineal massage is recommended to reduce perineal trauma at the time of delivery. The practice has been shown to be acceptable to pregnant women taking part in research studies. The aim of...
