Epidemiology of Pelvic Floor Disorders

Baltimore, MD, United States


Summary

This research focuses on the association between cesarean delivery and the incidence of pelvic floor disorders. We recruited >1000 women delivered by “unlabored cesarean delivery” (UCD), “labored cesarean delivery” (LCD), or vaginal birth (VB). We have investigated whether the 5-10 year incidence of pelvic floor disorders differs between these three groups and how the incidence is impacted by labor interventions. In addition, we have developed a longitudinal study of these cohorts to further investigate the long-term impact of childbirth on pelvic floor disorders.
