Predicting Obstetric Anal Sphincter Injuries in a Modern Obstetric Population

Cahill, A.G., Meister, M.R., Lowder, J.L., Woolfolk, C.L., Conner, S.N.
(Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2016;215(3):310.e1–e7) The main purpose of this nested case control study was to investigate a modern obstetric cohort in order to identify risk factors and develop prediction models for perineal lacerations and obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASI, third and fourth degree lacerations) during vaginal delivery. In addition, this study also reevaluated the known risk factors in order to potentially identify new risk factors for any perineal laceration and OASI so as to determine the role of parity in the risk of sustaining any perineal laceration and OASI.
