Korttila, K.T., Sarvela, P.J., Halmesmäki, E., Kainu, J.P.
(Anesth Analg. 2016;123(6):1535–1545) Persistent pain after cesarean delivery has been associated with recall of acute pain and history of chronic pain. In an earlier retrospective study, the authors found that the incidence of persistent pain at 1 year after cesarean delivery was 18%, compared with 10% at vaginal delivery (P=0.011). To confirm these findings, the authors evaluated the intensity and characteristics of persistent pain and its association with previous pain and other obstetric factors in this prospective study.
