Puerperium

Question
4 out of 14
 

A woman presented on 7th day after 3rd degree perineal tear. Management should be done: (LQ)



A After 3 months

B After 4 weeks

C After 3 days

D Immediately

Ans. A

After 3 months

a. Recent tear should be repaired immediately following the delivery of the placenta. This reduces the chance of infection and minimizes the blood loss.

b. In case of delay beyond 24 hours, the repair is to be withheld. Antiseptic dressing is prescribed and the wound is allowed to heal by granulation tissue or repaired after the infection is controlled. The complete tear (3rd degree), however, should be repaired after 3 months if delayed beyond 24 hours.
