Recent Trends in Caesarean Section

Nowadays caesarean section is a trending topic in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. According to new research from the World Health Organization (WHO), the caesarean section rate is increasing globally, now accounting for more than 1 in 5 (21%) childbirths. This rate is planned to rise in the future, with nearly a third (29%) of all next births likely to be delivered by caesarean section by 2030.

Furthermore, if we consider the WHO data, worldwide caesarean section rates have risen from around 7% in 1990 to 21% today, and are projected to continue increasing over this current decade. If this trend continues, by 2030 the highest rates are likely to be in Eastern Asia (63%), Latin America and the Caribbean (54%), Western Asia (50%), Northern Africa (48%) Southern Europe (47%) and Australia and New Zealand (45%), the research suggests. If we consider these numbers, we need to consider all the data related to them, in terms of morbidity and mortality which mothers and children could be affected in the next decades. According to these elements, it is important to increase the research in this field, with the aim to prevent and face the clinical problems related to this surgical procedure in the future.

The aim of this research topic is to collect a series of original studies, review and meta-analysis research articles that would present the most recent advances in the field of caesarean section, including best surgical procedures, short and long complication management, and best clinical strategies to reduce its rate in the future.

  • Best surgical procedure of caesarean section
  • Management of long and short complications of caesarean section
  • Caesarean scar pregnancy: medical and surgical options
  • Difficult extraction during a caesarean section
  • Wound infection of caesarean scar
  • Myomectomy during a caesarean section: possible option?
  • Training in caesarean section
  • Prevention of caesarean section: which strategy
  • The niche-related gynaecological symptoms and the advances in management

New insights and innovative approaches may help to design novel treatment strategies. We do not restrict ourselves to the potential approaches aforementioned, and we also welcome any other original/review/meta-analysis research articles about recent improvements, developments, and findings in the field of caesarean section.
