Among obstetric techniques, cesarean section seemed to represent a well-defined procedure and significant advances in this intervention were considered to be unlikely. However, obstetric surgery has recently undergone many improvements. In 1972, Joel-Cohen presented a new method for transverse incision of the abdomen. This method, with some modifications, was integrated into the Misgav-Ladach cesarean section. The philosophy of this technique is to cause the least possible damage to tissues, to refrain from superfluous steps, and to make the intervention the simplest possible. Advantages of this method are lower incidence of fever and urinary tract infection, reduced use of antibiotics and narcotics, faster re-establishment of normal bowel function, shorter maternal hospital stay and less postoperative adhesion formation. The Misgav-Ladach method of cesarean section is suitable for emergency and elective procedures, justifying its use in daily routine.
