Objectives: To find out the short term morbidity of non-closure of the visceral and parietal peritonium during caesarean section compared to suturing of visceral and parietal peritonium. Method: A prospective study of two hundred women undergoing caesarean section was done. Perioperative, intraoperative and postoperative details were observed. Results: Operating time, anaesthesia time and time of ambulation were significantly shorter in non-closure group. There was less postoperative pain, analgesic requirement and febrile requirement in non-closure group. However, it was not statistically significant. Conclusion:Non-closing the visceral and parietal peritonium at caesarean is associated with lesser operating time, decreased febrial morbitity and lesser need for postoperative analgesic. Hence, routine closure of peritoneum at caesarean can be avoided.
