Researchers Indicate Three-fold Risk of Death after Cesarean Delivery

Paris: Researchers from France have indicated a risk of death almost three times pronounced for women undergoing a caesarian delivery as compared to a vaginal one.

Catherine Deneux-Tharaux, M.D., M.P.H., of Hospital Teno, and colleagues reported that Women, who had died either during or within a month after delivery, were likely to have died following a caesarian rather than a vaginal delivery; irrespective of whether the caesarian was performed before the beginning of labor or during the course of labor.

Postpartum maternal mortality was studied using data from 65 maternal deaths that occurred prior to delivery or after illness. "Although cesarean delivery is increasingly perceived as a low-risk procedure, it is still associated with an increased risk of postpartum maternal death compared with vaginal delivery, even when performed before labor," said Dr. Deneux-Tharaux and colleagues.

The researchers inferred that "The method of delivery may constitute one potentially modifiable risk factor of maternal mortality that needs to be taken into account by clinicians and women when balancing the risks against the benefits of the different methods of delivery."
