Abstract

Objective: to verify the risk of post-partum urinary incontinence in women who delivered by application of rapid vacuum exctractor compared to women who delivered spontaneously. Methods: 80 nulliparous women were selected. They were divided into two groups (group A = vacuum delivery; group B = spontaneous vaginal delivery) and subjected to a questionnaire about continence status, type, frequency and amount of leakage and about their effect on quality of life. Results: after 1 month from delivery 15% of group A and 10% of group B reported urinary incontinence. At 6 month cases were reduced to 7,5% in group A and 2,5% in group B. We observed stress urinary incontinence in group A while mostly mixed urinary incontinence in group B. The quality of life doesn't seem to be influenced by this problem. Conclusion: no evidence of statistical relation between post-partum urinary incontinence and application of rapid vacuum extractor was seen.
