Short-Term Postoperative Outcomes between 4% Icodextrin Solution and Hyaluronic Acid- Carboxymethyl Cellulose Membrane during Emergency Cesarean Section.
This clinical trial was published in 2019 in Journal of J Clin Med. (IF2018: 5.02) by Taiwan specialists. This study focuses on comparing the short-term postoperative outcomes of emergency cesarean sections between two groups. A retrospective study that included all patients who received emergency caesarean sections from the same surgeon at MacKay Memorial Hospital between August 2014 and November 2017, We analyzed the overall cases and conducted a subgroup analysis of cases with contaminated or dirty/infected wounds in regard to the rates of surgical-site infection (SSI), bandemia, delayed flatus passage, and length of hospital stay.
Adept users have a lower incidence of postcesarean metritis in emergency cesarean sections with contaminated and dirty/infected wounds. It also needs a shorter recovery time of the digestive system and less medical management postoperatively. Thus, we believe that it is beneficial to use Adept rather than Seprafilm in emergency cesarean sections.
