Abstract

Aim: The aim of the study was to compare the outcomes of emergent and planned peripartum hysterectomy. Methods: This retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted in two hospitals. Maternal and neonatal outcomes were compared according to the emergent and planned peripartum hysterectomy. Results: Totally 34020 deliveries were evaluated retrospectively and 66 peripartum hysterectomy cases were analyzed. Of these patients, 31 cases were planned surgery and 35 cases were emergent surgery. The patients who underwent planned peripartum hysterectomy had lower rate of blood transfusion (83.9% vs. 100%, p=0.014), higher postoperative hemoglobin levels (9.9±1.3 vs. 8.3±1.3, p<0.001) compared with the emergent hysterectomy group. The birth weight was lower although the apgar scores were higher in the planned surgery compared with the emergent cases. Conclusion: The planned peripartum hysterectomy with a experienced team provide less need for transfusion and improved neonatal outcomes in regard to the emergent peripartum hysterectomy.
