is not exclusively a consequence of caesarean delivery. Other surgical trauma to the integrity of the uterine endometrium and/or superficial myometrium, such as those following uterine curettage, manual removal of the placenta, postpartum endometritis or myomectomy, has been associated with accreta placentation in subsequent pregnancies. , , Overall, the aOR for placenta accreta spectrum after previous uterine surgery is 3.40 (95% CI 1.30–8.91). Evidence level 2+ The development of placenta accreta spectrum has (...) the placental edge is less than 20 mm from the internal os, and as normal when the placental edge is 20 mm or more from the internal os on TAS or TVS. This new classification could better define the risks of perinatal complications, such as antepartum haemorrhage and major postpartum haemorrhage (PPH), , and has the potential of improving the obstetric management of placenta praevia. Recent articles reviewed in this guideline refer to the AIUM classification. The estimated incidence of placenta praevia

The use of antibiotics did not reduce the incidence of urinary tract infections, wound infection or the length of maternal hospital stay. Antibiotics are not a substitute for infection prevention and control measures around the time of childbirth and the postpartum period. The decision to routinely administer prophylactic antibiotics after normal vaginal births needs (...) administration of prophylactic antibiotics to women after normal (uncomplicated) vaginal birth, compared with placebo or no antibiotic prophylaxis, reduces postpartum maternal infectious morbidities and improves outcomes.We searched the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group's Trials Register (31 August 2017), LILACS, ClinicalTrials.gov, the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) (22 August 2017) and reference lists of retrieved studies.We planned to include randomised or quasi

Antibiotic prophylaxis for episiotomy repair following vaginal birth. Bacterial infections occurring during labour, childbirth, and the puerperium may be associated with considerable maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Antibiotic prophylaxis might reduce wound infection incidence after an episiotomy, particularly in situations associated with a higher risk of postpartum perineal infection, such as midline episiotomy, extension of the incision, or in settings where the baseline risk

90. Antibiotic prophylaxis for operative vaginal delivery. (PubMed)

Antibiotic prophylaxis for operative vaginal delivery. Vacuum and forceps assisted vaginal deliveries are reported to increase the incidence of postpartum infections and maternal readmission to hospital compared to spontaneous vaginal delivery. Prophylactic antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent these infections. However, the benefit of antibiotic prophylaxis for operative vaginal deliveries is still unclear.To assess the effectiveness and safety of antibiotic prophylaxis in reducing (...) endometritis and maternal length of stay.One small trial was identified reporting only two outcomes. Evidence from this single trial suggests that antibiotic prophylaxis may lead to little or no difference in endometritis or maternal length of stay. There were no data on any other outcomes to evaluate the impact of antibiotic prophylaxis after operative vaginal delivery. Future research on antibiotic prophylaxis for operative vaginal delivery is needed to conclude whether it is useful for reducing
