|Cesarean section uterine scar dehiscence (CSD) is a rare but notable complication of Lower segment cesarean section (LSCS) surgery. Incidence of Uterine scar dehiscence irrespective of cause is around 0.6 % worldwide, but in fact the rate is 0.6% and 3.8%. Ofili-Yebovi et al found 19.4% patients who had undergone cesarean section surgery had a defect in their scars. Uterine rupture is a rare complication of pregnancy potentially leading to severe maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Estimated incidence is 5.3 to 0.6 per 10,000 live births. The classical (vertical) scar at the upper part (body) of the uterus is more vulnerable to ruptures and can cause more serious complications both for the mother and her babyBoth can present in multiple ways. The presentation may be silent in many, but may cause symptoms like dysmenorrhea, inter menstrual bleeding, irregular genital bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, dyspareunia and secondary infertility. During labor symptoms would include vaginal bleeding, sharp pain between contractions, abdominal pain or tenderness, recession of the fetal head, bulging under the pubic bone and onset of sharp pain at the site of previous scar. Both can thence occur either immediately after childbirth or some may have presentation after about 2-4 weeks of delivery. Presentation can be with postpartum hemorrhage, endomyometritis and peritonitis. Once peritonitis occurs as a result, sepsis may ensue risking the life of the patient.|
