Post-Cesarean endometritis occurs when uterine tissue starts to grow at the incision site following a Cesarean section. Preoperative vaginal scrub with povidone-iodine solution immediately before Cesarean delivery reduces the risk of postoperative endometritis, especially for women undergoing Cesarean delivery with ruptured membranes. This intervention does not seem to decrease the overall risk of postoperative fever or wound infection.
