Supra- versus Infra-panniclular skin incision in cesarean section: surgical techniques
To the Editor,
Cesarean section is rising now with an estimated prevalence in the UK about 25% of deliveries and in Egypt, a developing country, it is around 55% and maybe more. Obesity and overweight patients with BMI over 30 are rising now due to poor lifestyle and unhealthy diet. Obesity prevalence in the UK is around 30% and it is rising. So, we commonly encounter obese patients scheduled for cesarean section whether as elective or emergency cases. Cesarean section is high in obese women due to poor progress of labor, large baby, abnormal position and presentation.
