    • Adson: Skin
    • Bonney: Fascia
    • DeBakey: soft tissue, bleeders
    • Russians: uterus

  • Uses:
    • Allis-Adair: tissue, uterus
    • Pennington: tissue, uterus
    • These are suitable for hemostasis use
surgical instruments11
Surgical Instruments
  • Uses:
    • Kocher clamp: fascia, thicker tissues
surgical instruments12
Surgical Instruments
  • Uses:
    • Richardson: general retractor
    • Goelet: subQ retractor
    • Fritsch bladder blade
surgical instruments13
Surgical Instruments
  • Uses:
    • Mayo, curved: fascia
    • Metzenbaum, curved: soft tissue
    • Bandage scissors: cord cutting, uterine extension
first assisting
  • General principles:
    • Ensure proper exposure of the working field
    • Anticipate next move and be proactive
    • Listen carefully to surgeon’s instructions
    • If unsure of surgeon’s preferences – ASK!!
    • Have good situational awareness
cesarean section
Cesarean Section
  • Preparation phase:
    • Ensure pt is moved to OR in timely fashion – strong, respectful encouragement to staff may be necessary
    • Ensure good FHT before prepping!!
    • If possible, don’t make primary surgeon wait on you
    • Assist draping pt., connecting suction & bovie
cesarean section incision to uterus
Cesarean Section: Incision to Uterus
  • Provide traction/counter-traction to increase exposure during skin and subQ incision
cesarean section incision to uterus17
Cesarean Section: Incision to Uterus
  • Be ready with DeBakey forceps to grab bleeders – especially the Superficial Epigastric vessels
cesarean section incision to uterus18
Cesarean Section: Incision to Uterus
  • Use Richardson retractors in superior/lateral fashion to assist in incising rectus fascia
  • Assist with elevating superior and inferior edges of rectus fascia with Kocher clamps, provide counter-traction, ensure adequate lighting
cesarean section uterine incision to delivery
Cesarean Section: Uterine Incision to Delivery
  • With bladder blade inserted, use Richardson to retract superior tissue for optimum exposure
cesarean section uterine incision to delivery20
Cesarean Section: Uterine Incision to Delivery
  • With pressure applied to suction tip, suction uterine incision during passes of scalpel to ensure adequate visualization and prevent fetal injury
cesarean section uterine incision to delivery21
Cesarean Section: Uterine Incision to Delivery
  • After incision is made, give adequate retraction if uterine extension is needed and prepare for fundal pressure
  • Be ready for bladder blade removal on surgeon’s command before head delivery
  • Once infant is delivered, either bulb suction infant or clamp/cut cord
  • Hand infant off to waiting NRP staff
cesarean section closure
Cesarean Section: Closure
  • Use a moist lap sponge to wrap uterus and retract once placenta is delivered
  • Facilitate closure of the uterine incision by ensuring locking of suture by flipping suture loop over needle
cesarean section closure23
Cesarean Section: Closure
  • Assist with maintaining hemostasis, irrigating rectouterine pouch and gutters and closure of fascia/skin
  • Fascia closed with non-locking suture – do not want to strangulate vessels
  • SubQ space closed if over 2 cm depth
  • If needed, clear lower uterine segment and vagina of clots once skin is closed and dressed
post operative care
Post-Operative Care
  • Pt. must urinate within four hours of Foley removal, otherwise replace Foley for another 12 hours
  • Any fever post-op MUST be investigated
    • Wind: Atelectasis, pneumonia
    • Water: UTI
    • Walking: DVT, PE, Pelvic thromboembolism
    • Wounded: Incisional infection, endomyometritis, septic shock
post operative care25
Post-Operative Care
  • In the first 12-24 hours, the dressing may become soaked with serosanguinous fluid – if saturated, replace dressing otherwise no action needed
  • After Foley is removed (usually within 12 hours post-op), encourage ambulation of halls, not just room
  • Dressing may be removed in 24-48 hours post-op (attending specific), use maxipad
  • Ensure pt. is tolerating PO intake, urinating well and has flatus before discharge
  • Watch for post-op ileus
delayed complications
Delayed Complications
  • Subsequent Pregnancies
    • Uterine rupture/dehiscence
    • Abnormal placental implantation (accreta, etc)
    • Repeat Cesarean section
  • Adhesions
  • Scaring/Keloids
wound dehiscence
Wound Dehiscence
  • Noted by separation of wound usually during staple removal or within 1-2 weeks post-op
  • Must explore entire wound to determine depth of dehiscence (open up incision if needed) – if through rectus fascia, back to the OR
  • If dehiscence only in subQ layer, debride wound daily with 1:1 sterile saline/H2O2 mixture and pack with gauze
  • May use prophylactic abx – Keflex, Bactrim, Clinda
  • KEY: Close f/u and wound exploration
post partum counseling pharm
Post-partum counseling:Pharm
  • Continue PNV
  • Colace
  • Motrin 800 mg q8
  • Percocet 1-2 tabs q4-6 for breakthrough
  • OCP (start 4-6 wks post-partum)
post partum counseling activity
Post-partum counseling:Activity
  • No lifting objects over baby’s wt.
  • Continue ambulation
  • No strenuous activity
  • NOTHING by vagina (sex, tampons, douches, bathtubs, hot tubs) for 6 wks!!
post partum counseling incision care
Post-partum counseling:Incision Care
  • Only showers – light washing
  • If pt has steristrips, should fall off in 7-10 days, otherwise use warm, wet washcloth to remove
  • If pt has staples – removal in 3-7 days outpt.
  • Most attendings will have pt f/u in office in about 2 wks for wound check
post partum counseling notify md do
Post-partum counseling:Notify MD/DO
