Introduction: Data regarding the risk of incontinence after cesarean hysterectomy are lacking. We aimed to assess the risk of urinary incontinence in women who underwent planned cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accreta. Methods: This was a retrospective study of women who underwent planned cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accreta. The primary outcome was the incidence of post-cesarean hysterectomy urinary incontinence, defined as involuntary loss of urine between 3 and 12 months after cesarean hysterectomy. Outcomes were compared in a cohort of women who underwent planned cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accreta with a control group of women who underwent scheduled cesarean section without hysterectomy. Results: Forty-seven singleton gestations who underwent planned cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accrete were included in the study and were compared with 100 controls. Eight cases of bladder injuries were reported, 7 in the planned cesarean hysterectomy group and one in the planned cesarean delivery group. Overall, urinary incontinence was reported in 10 women of the planned cesarean hysterectomy group and in 8 women of the planned cesarean section group (21.3% vs. 8.0%; p = 0.03). Conclusion: Planned cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accreta is a risk factor for urinary incontinence.

Abstract

Introduction: Data regarding the risk of incontinence after cesarean hysterectomy are lacking. We aimed to assess the risk of urinary incontinence in women who underwent planned cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accreta. Methods: This was a retrospective study of women who underwent planned cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accreta. The primary outcome was the incidence of post-cesarean hysterectomy urinary incontinence, defined as involuntary loss of urine between 3 and 12 months after cesarean hysterectomy. Outcomes were compared in a cohort of women who underwent planned cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accreta with a control group of women who underwent scheduled cesarean section without hysterectomy. Results: Forty-seven singleton gestations who underwent planned cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accrete were included in the study and were compared with 100 controls. Eight cases of bladder injuries were reported, 7 in the planned cesarean hysterectomy group and one in the planned cesarean delivery group. Overall, urinary incontinence was reported in 10 women of the planned cesarean hysterectomy group and in 8 women of the planned cesarean section group (21.3% vs. 8.0%; p = 0.03). Conclusion: Planned cesarean hysterectomy for placenta accreta is a risk factor for urinary incontinence.
