dc.description.abstractIntroduction: Endometritis, a polymicrobial infection resulting from ascending cervicovaginal bacteria into the uterus, complicates 6-27% of cesarean deliveries. A recent meta-analysis showed a reduction in endometritis in women who received 30 seconds of vaginal cleansing (4.5% vs 8.8%). Our study will look at the rates of endometritis from two time periods – prior to and after the implementation of vaginal cleansing at time of cesarean delivery. We will also investigate the influence of misoprostol on the clinical diagnosis of post-cesarean endometritis.
