Abstract

Background: Prevalence of the episiotomy varies around the world depending on whether it is used as a routine or a restricted procedure. The rates are still higher in developing countries, like ours, since the use of restricted episiotomy is not being practiced widely in primigravidas.

Methods: In our randomized comparative study of 222 women who were admitted to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, SMS Medical College Jaipur, the enrolled women were divided into 2 groups. In Group-A: Vicrylrapide (polygalactin-910) suture material was used in 111 patients and in Group-B chromic catgut suture material was used in another 111 patients, for repair of episiotomies.

Results: In our present study in vicryl rapide group at 24-48 hrs pain was present in 49.55% of patients, redness was found in 8.10% of patients, swelling was found in 3.60% patients and analgesic used by 72.97% of patients. In chromic group at 24-48 hrs pain was present in 69.36% of patients, redness was found in 21.62%, swelling was found in 7.20% and analgesic was used by 89.18% of patients.

Conclusion: Our study recommends use of vicryl rapide for episiotomy repair in the care of parturient women.
