Past studies have looked primarily at vertical vs low transverse skin incision. There is data that performing a high transverse skin incision on obese patients leads to better visualization and less wound infection but there are few studies comparing it directly to low transverse skin incision.
Retrospective chart review of obese patient's who have had a cesarean section at St Mary's hospital by either a low or high transverse skin incision between January 1, 2009 - July 31, 2014. We will review charts up to 6 week postpartum.
Pregnancies will be identified through identifing those who have cesarean sections. They will be narrowed down by those who have BMI of > 30. Maternal prenatal records, postnatal records and delivery records will be reviewed.
