Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the impact of suturing versus alternative methods/techniques for the repair of episiotomies or second degree perineal tears on the incidence of short- and long-term postpartum morbidity.

Comparisons will be made in the following categories.

  1. Standard suturing technique versus alternative wound closure techniques for all layers (vagina mucosa, muscles and perineal skin).

  2. Standard suturing technique versus alternative wound closure techniques for perineal skin closure only.
