Abstract

Objective: To examine the effectiveness of a multidisciplinary, team-based approach to management of cesarean hysterectomy. Methods: In a retrospective chart review, data were analyzed from a quality assurance database of hysterectomies performed after cesarean delivery at one institution in the USA. Patients were identified through billing codes for cesarean delivery, cross-referenced to codes for hysterectomy. Demographic, reproductive, and outcome data were compared before (2000–2005) and after (2011–2013) implementation of a multidisciplinary team-based protocol. Results: Across the two study periods, 107 cesarean hysterectomies were identified (69 pre-implementation, 38 post-implementation). In univariate analysis, the post-implementation group had fewer days in surgical intensive care than did the pre-implementation group (0.21 ± 0.41 vs 1.04 ± 2.44 days; P=0.011), and a lower frequency of febrile morbidity (4 [11%] vs 22 [32%]; P=0.033]. In multivariate analysis with adjustment for potential confounders, the likelihood of postoperative febrile morbidity was higher during the pre-implementation than the post-implementation period (adjusted odds ratio 3.5, 95% confidence interval 1.09–13.65; P=0.048). Conclusion: Outcomes were improved after the multidisciplinary team-based approach to cesarean hysterectomy was implemented. Team-based approaches to care of women undergoing cesarean hysterectomy are important to improve outcomes.
