Resumen

LUJAN HERNANDEZ, Marta. Endometritis poscesáreas en el Hospital Materno de Cienfuegos. Rev Cubana Hig Epidemiol [online]. 2001, vol.39, n.2, pp.120-125. ISSN 1561-3003.

An analytical case-control study was conducted among patients who underwent cesarean sections at the Provincial Maternal Hospital from January to July, 1998. 31 patients were studied. There were 8 cases that corresponded to the patients with endometritis and 23 controls. To collect the primary data the registry of operations and the obstetric medical histories were reviewed and the following variables were selected: mother’s age, history of sepsis during pregnancy, premature rupture of membranes, labor time and manoeuvres employed in the operation. The results were analyzed in a computer and we found that there is a probability of endometritis in 35 % of the patients with history of sepsis (VP + =35). The history of meconium (25.8 %) and induction (19.3 %) were among the most important risks.
