Myometrium contraction is a complex process involving electrical, hormonal and mechanical phenomena. With all the effort, studies reported so far indicate that uterine contraction is not completely known.
Methods: In this paper, by presenting the current stage of uterine contraction research from the perspective of three approaches (medical, engineering and interdisciplinar), it is desired to encourage the collaborative research. An interdisciplinary research methodology is also presented in the paper, based on which outstanding issues on uterine contractions can be addressed in a common perspective.
Conclusion: Uterine contractions are a complex process that studied at different levels and from different perspectives involves principles and phenomena of anatomic-biological, mechanical, electrical, etc. This justifies an interdisciplinary approach to uterine contractions, and this paper is the first wrok that highlights this.
