Abstract (English)  :

METHODS We describe a prospective study, done over a 2-year period in which a total of 958 women having a vaginal delivery were randomised to the drainage method (478 women) or controlled cord traction method (480 women) for placental delivery.

RESULTS: The mean age, parity, gestation and birth weight were similar in the two groups. The mean duration of third stage of labor was 3.24 min and 3.2 min in the placental drainage group in contrast to 8.57 min and 6.20 min in controlled cord traction method in primigravida and multigravida respectively.

CONCLUSION: Placental drainage significantly reduces the duration of third stage of labour in vaginal deliveries.
