Background & Objectives: Endometritis is the most common complication of cesarean section and can cause complications such as prolonged hospitalization, additional costs, establish long-term use of antibiotics, adhesions and infertility. The prevalence of cesarean section infection has been estimated 3 to 15 percent. The incidence of infection depends on socio-economic factors, length of labor, parity, the duration of the rupture of membranes (ROM) or amniorrhexis, and the mode of delivery. The perioperative application of antimicrobial drugs has changed it radically.
Material & Methods: This is a cross-sectional study that required information was collected from 300 women who had cesarean in Vali-e-Asr hospital. A questionnaire was filled out at mothers’ bed, in women's ward. Data were analyzed by chi square test through SPSS software. (P<0.05)
Results: Among the 300 cases, 15 patients (5%) had postpartum infection. There was a significant difference between post section infection and cesarean section (elective or emergency), maternal education level, maternal age and parity, prenatal care, type of anesthesia. There was no significant relationship between infection after cesarean section and average age of the women, PROM, gestational diabetes, BMI.
Conclusion: Education level, parity and prenatal care, type of cesarean section, type of anesthesia, are the risk factors of post cesarean infection. We hope to control the incidence of preventable dangerous complications of post section infection and reduce health consequences for the mother as well as the health system.
