Abstract

An IUD (TCu220C) was inserted in 82 women during low-transverse cesarean section. No untoward effect on puerperal morbidity or lactation was observed and no serious complications occurred in this series. At 12 months the rates were zero for pregnancy and 7.7 for expulsion; the latter figure is comparable to that reported after immediate postplacental insertion of the same IUD model. Intracesarean IUD insertion is a procedure that deserves further promotion.

Résumé

Un dispositif intra-utérin (TCu220C) a été mis en place chez 82 femmes au cours d'une césarienne transverse basse. On ńa noté aucune répercussion défavorable sur la morbidité post-puerpérale ni sur l'allaitement et aucune complication sérieuse ńest apparue dans cette série. Au bout de douze mois, les fréquences étaient de zéro pour les grossesses et de 7,7 pour les expulsions. Les chiffres ultérieurs sont comparables à ce qui a été publié après insertion post-placentaire immédiate du même modèle de DIU. La mise en place d'un DIU au cours de la césarienne est une méthode qui mérite d'être plus largement répandue.

Resumen

A 82 mujeres se les insertó un DIU (TCu220C) durante una cesárea transversa en el segmento bajo. No se observaron efectos adversos en la morbilidad puerperal y la lactancia y no ocurrieron complicaciones serias en esta serie. A los 12 meses la tasa de embarazos fue de cero y de 7,7 la de expulsiones; esta última cifra es comparable a la registrada después de la inserción postparto inmediato del mismo modelo du DIU. Por lo tanto, la inserción intracesárea de DIU se considera un procedimiento que merece mayor promoción.
