Cesarean Postoperative Pain Satisfaction With Intravenous Patient-Controlled Analgesia (IV PCA), Oral, or Epidural Method
There is no significant difference in Cesarean patients' perceptions of overall pain management satisfaction between methods used for postoperative pain management.
There is a significant difference between Cesarean patients' perceptions of advantages and disadvantages of three postoperative pain management methods identified by obstetrical patients.
Participants will be introduced to study by anesthesia personnel in labor and delivery. The subject will be informed of the desire for their input on their perceived satisfaction with their chosen method for post-operative pain management and will be asked to participate in an anonymous survey by their second day after surgery. They will be informed that this is voluntary. Method of post-operative medication administration will be determined by attending physician to be either: epidural, IVPCA, or oral medication. Methods will be initiated in recovery room or the operative suite.
Subjects will be identified on a postpartum admission log and a screening log will be created for study purposes.
Informed Consents will be obtained. The screening log entries will be numbered corresponding to a numbered survey. The screening log will contain demographic and other patient identifiers including age, ethnicity, parity, presence of labor prior to cesarean, admission status of baby, cost associated with method and presence of rescue drugs and costs of rescue drugs and method services. Refusal information, exclusion criteria, and time/date of survey completion will also be recorded. This log will be maintained under lock and key.

Vaginal Birth After Cesarean
Delivery of an infant through the vagina in a female who has had a prior cesarean section.
Cesarean Section, Repeat
Extraction of the fetus by abdominal hysterotomy anytime following a previous cesarean.
Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.
Intraoperative computer-assisted 3D navigation and guidance system generally used in neurosurgery for tracking surgical tools and localize them with respect to the patient's 3D anatomy. The pre-operative diagnostic scan is used as a reference and is transferred onto the operative field during surgery.
Bacterial infections of the leptomeninges and subarachnoid space, frequently involving the cerebral cortex, cranial nerves, cerebral blood vessels, spinal cord, and nerve roots. The type of causative organism varies with age and clinical status (e.g., post-operative, immunodeficient, or post-traumatic states). Clinical manifestations include the acute onset of fever, stiff neck, altered mentation, seizures, and focal neurologic deficits. Death may occur within 24 hours of disease onset. Pathologic features include a purulent exudate in the subarachnoid space, and diffuse inflammation of neural and vascular structures. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1994, Ch24, pp1-5)
Women having cesarean section will be divided into two groups - cesarean section alone or cesarean section with appendectomy. The purpose is to see if the appendectomy can be done without...
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether the use of the Mobius® retractor decreased post-operative pain after cesarean section verses conventional retractor use. Based on clini...
Suture reapproximation of the rectus muscles at primary cesarean delivery is a common practice about which there are no data. Some Obstetricians believe that suture reapproximation of the...

This study will demonstrate whether an electric warming mattress can reduce the number of patients who get cold and shiver after elective cesarean section. Peri-operative hypothermia (bod...
BACKGROUND: This study aimed to determine the distribution of operative delivery times for uncomplicated parturients undergoing elective cesarean delivery with neuraxial anesthesia. A secondary aim wa...
The reproductive outcome in 41 consecutive patients with cesarean-induced isthmocele and secondary infertility was evaluated prospectively. Patients included menopausal women (mean [SD; 95% CI] age, 3...
PURPOSE: Primary objective was to assess whether oral analgesia with oxycodone offers superior pain relief after cesareans than patient controlled analgesia (PCA). Secondary outcomes were additional p...
The effect of the severity of appendiceal inflammation on post-operative stay in children following appendicectomy has shown conflicting results. This study was conducted to determine the association...
