Caesarean Section: Step 3 - Uterine Incision

  • 0:02 - 0:06
    So now the next step would be to incise the uterus
  • 0:06 - 0:10
    before that we'll have to identify the uterovisecal peritonium
  • 0:10 - 0:15
    and we'll have to pick up the uterovisecal fold with the forceps
  • 0:15 - 0:23
    and we'll cut the uterovisecal perotonium using our scissors
  • 0:23 - 0:26
    and we'll try to make a bladder flap
  • 0:26 - 0:30
    by holding the uterovisecal peritonium and the
  • 0:30 - 0:35
    and bluntly dissecting with our index finger
  • 0:35 - 0:38
    and then after making a bladder flap
  • 0:38 - 0:45
    we'll insert the x retractor in the bladder flap and then the next step will be
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    to make the uterine incision
  • 0:47 - 0:52
    so we'll make a transverse incision on the lower segment
  • 0:52 - 0:56
    and usually we can, the preferred method is to
  • 0:56 - 1:00
    to bluntly dissect the uterine incision using our fingers
