Résumé (français)  :

Abstract (English)  :

Our study is a retrospective analysis of deliveries registered in the Dutch National Obstetric Database. We cannot rule out incomplete recording of perineal morbidity. However, in this database, obstetricians are allowed to register per case both episiotomy and any type of perineal damage. The computer system had no default setting of recording only the most serious morbidity. In our opinion, it is therefore unlikely that our results are flawed by incomplete or erroneous recording.

Argument (français) :

Jusqu’à ce qu’un essai contrôlé randomisé bien mené évalue le rôle de l’épisiotomie médiolatérale dans les accouchements vaginaux opératoires, les études rétrospectives sur de larges populations sont la meilleure preuve à ce sujet.

Argument (English):

Until a well‐performed randomised controlled trial evaluates the role of mediolateral episiotomy in operative vaginal deliveries, retrospective studies in large populations are the best evidence on this subject.

Argumento (português):

Até que um ensaio randomizado controlado bem realizado avalia o papel da episiotomia mediolateral em partos vaginais operatórios, estudos retrospectivos em grandes populações são as melhores evidências sobre este assunto.
