The rate of Caesarean section is increasing and has given rise to the requirement of an internationally acceptable and applicable system of classification. The objective of this study was to analyse the efficacy and practicability of classification of caesarean section by Robson’s criteria and its value in clinical practise.
Methods: This prospective observational comparative study was conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of Dr. D.Y Patil Medical College, Hospital, Pimpri, Pune. A total number of 200 antenatal females that fulfilled the criteria were included.
Results:The overall Caesarean rate noted in our study was found to be 41%. 118 females of the 200 delivered vaginally while the rest were delivered by Caesarean section.
Conclusion: A relevant classification of Caesarean section rates and their indications allows an audit for evaluation and monitoring of the contributors to the Caesarean section rate and their impact.
