Extraperitoneal repeat cesarean section (CS) performed in 36 women with previous intraperitoneal CS (group A) was compared with another 36 cases of intraperitoneal repeat CS (group B). The average blood loss was 146ml in group A and 230ml in group B (P < 0.01). Operation time in group A lasted 40 minutes including 9 cases of tubal ligation coincidentally and 66 minutes in B with 12 tubal ligation (P < 0.05). There were 2 cases of peritoneal damage and 1 transient hematuria in group A. Postoperative morbidity in group A was 16.7% and 38.9% in group B (P < 0.01). The average time for bowel function recurrence was 26.2 hours in A and 52.6 in B respectively. No evident complication occurred in either group. It indicated that extraperitoneal route might be superior to intraperitoneal one for repeat cesarean section.
