This study by the Coronis Collaborative Group (Lancet, 2016) aimed to determine if there were differences in maternal morbidity depending on which of five surgical techniques for caesarean section a woman received.

13,153 women were followed up with for a mean duration of 3.8 years after receiving a C-section through one of five surgical techniques. The five pairs of alternative surgical techniques surveyed were blunt vs. sharp abdominal entry; exteriorization of the uterus vs. intra-abdominal repair; single vs. double layer closure of the uterus; closure vs. non-closure of the peritoneum; and chromic catgut vs. polyglactin-910 sutures.
The study found no evidence to prefer one surgical technique over another based on the following outcomes
