Given that morbid obesity has been strongly associated with obstetric, neonatal and anesthetic complications, and that scarce reports have evaluated anesthetic and obstetric outcomes after cesarean delivery in morbidly obese patients; This study retrospectively analyzed anesthetic, obstetric and neonatal outcomes in morbidly obese pregnant patients who underwent cesarean delivery at Augusta University Medical Center, during a 2-year period (2015-2016).

Study summary:

This study compared non-obese, obese and morbidly obese patients with respect to maternal, perinatal and anesthetic outcomes. Obstetric aspects included emergent procedure, estimated blood loss, obstetric complications, maternal disposition, length of stay and in-hospital mortality. Neonatal aspects included Apgar scores. Anesthetic aspects included anesthetic technique, intraoperative hemodynamic instability, failed regional anesthesia and anesthetic complications.


Inclusion Criteria: - Pregnant patients who underwent cesarean section at Augusta University Medical Center. - Patients older than 18 years. Exclusion Criteria: - Gestational age <37 weeks. - Patients with chronic pain conditions
