Abstract

Introduction: Arrest of descent is one of the major indications of cesarean delivery and two commonly used methods are Push and Pull methods. In this study, considering the complications and problems caused by cesarean section, and the necessity of an appropriate strategy to reduce these problems, and the problems created for full-arrest neonates, we determined the APGAR score of neonates and compared the maternal and neonatal outcomes in cesarean section by Pull and Push methods in order to improve the quality of life and reduce the neonatal complications. Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 126 women who had undergone an emergency cesarean section due to arrest of descent in Ali ibn Abi Talib Hospital of Zahedan in 2016-2017. The maternal outcomes (bladder injury, uterine extension, duration of hospitalization) and neonatal outcomes (Apgar score) in cesarean section by Pull and Push methods were collected using the forms containing these information. Data were analyzed by SPSS software (version 21), and descriptive tests, Chi-square and independent t-test. Results: The mean of 1 and 5 minutes Apgar score in Pull method was significantly higher than Push method (p <0.001). Also, uterine extension in cesarean section by Pull method was significantly lower than Push method (p <0.001). Conclusion: The pull method is superior to the push method due to lower complications and better maternal and neonatal outcomes.
