Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To assess the change of uterine blood flow after Caesarean section.

STUDY DESIGN:

Doppler flow velocity waveforms were acquired from the uterine arteries and small arteries near the myometrial wound detected by transvaginal power Doppler ultrasonography in 23 patients on the 3rd, 6th and 9th postoperative days.

RESULTS:

The resistance index for the uterine artery did not show any change during the study period, while that for the small arteries slightly decreased.

CONCLUSION:

Uterine blood flow resistance after Caesarean section did not show any change during the early postpartum period.
