Should we advise women that pre-labor caesarean section prevents pelvic floor dysfunction?
Vaginal delivery is reported as a main risk factor of pelvic floor dysfunction. Nevertheless, data with a high level of evidence are lacking to confirm the hypothetic protective effect of pre-labor caesarean section. In order to promote a preventive strategy for a disease, it is necessary to know perfectly its pathophysiology and
to be sure that the strategy is in place before the beginning of the pathological process.
