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.

The purpose of this study is to determine the difference in pain scales between absorbable suture types for second-degree perineal laceration repair.
The aim of this study is to show that the performance of Novosyn® Quick suture material is comparable with other suture material used for episiotomy. In order to show that, various safety...
Randomized Controlled Trial of the Effectiveness of Perineal Pain and Security of the Suture Led by the Result of Hemostasis Versus Manual Compression Routine Suture Perineal Tears of First Degree During Childbirth
During childbirth, the recommendations have evolved to a restriction of episiotomy. This reduction results in an increase of superficial vaginal and perineal tears. These lesions are usual...
In countries where there is high prevalence of doing episiotomy in primiparous women, the incidence of sustained obstetric anal sphincter injuries is increasing. When the tear extend beyo...
A study in the postpartum period reveals that among women who delivered vaginally and having perineal lesions, between 95 and 100% of them suffer from perineal pain (episiotomy, tears from...
Perineal laceration sustained during vaginal delivery is considered one of the most common causes of anal sphincter injury and pelvic floor dysfunction. Faecal incontinence (FI) that afflicts 2-6% of ...
Reconstruction of perineal defects remains a challenge because such defects can be extensive, complex, and three-dimensional. This report presents a retrospective review of our past 5 years of experie...
To explore women's lived experiences of a dehisced perineal wound following childbirth and how they felt participating in a pilot and feasibility randomised controlled trial (RCT).
perineal injury is common after birth and may be caused by tears or episiotomy or both. Perineal massage has been shown to prevent episiotomies in primiparous women. On the other hand, pelvic floor ex...
Postpartum anaemia is a problem with high prevalence that significantly affects maternal recovery. Among the causal factors is perineal trauma. However, it is still not known what degree of perineal t...
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.
Pain associated with a damaged PUDENDAL NERVE. Clinical features may include positional pain with sitting in the perineal and genital areas, sexual dysfunction and FECAL INCONTINENCE and URINARY INCONTINENCE.
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.
A nerve which originates in the sacral spinal cord (S2 to S4) and innervates the PERINEUM, the external GENITALIA, the external ANAL SPHINCTER and the external urethral sphincter. It has three major branches: the perineal nerve, inferior anal nerves, and the dorsal nerve of penis or clitoris.
An incision of the posterior vaginal wall and a portion of the pudenda which enlarges the vaginal introitus to facilitate delivery and prevent lacerations.
