Despite the pervasiveness of this procedure, it is associated with a heightened risk of anesthesia-related adverse events when compared with vaginal delivery. It is also associated with an increased risk of nonanesthetic perioperative morbidity and mortality. The goal of this study was to evaluate these anesthesia-related adverse events in terms of temporal trends. The authors also examined nonanesthetic perioperative complications, and overall mortality related to cesarean deliveries. Copyright © 2016 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
