Evaluation of the link between pelvimetry based on computed tomography and predicting status’ delivery
The aim of this study is an anthropometric study in non-pregnant reproductive-aged women to predicting kind of delivery.
This study was based on the archived information of Hazrat-e Rasool university hospital on 157 generative age women from 16 to 60 years old. who underwent CT between March of 2015 until March of 2018.
The obtained results showed that the three conjugates on sagittal plane, transverse diameter, anteroposterior sagittal diameter, interspinous diameter and intertuberous diameter on the coronal plane. The obstetrical conjugate was (123.3 mm in normal vaginal delivery and 113.9 mm in Cesarean section) which it was slightly longer than delivery group. The mean interspinous and intertuberous diameters measured by CT scans were 105.0 mm and 107.4 mm.
The results of our study showed that because of the reduction in diameter of the inlet and middle pelvis, the rate of cesarean section was higher in under 35 years ages.
