Abstract:   (769 Views)

Background & Objective: This study aimed to investigate the relationship between the level of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP; as an indicator of inflammatory response) and shoulder tip pain (STP) following cesarean section (C-section).
Materials & Methods: In this cohort study, a total of 120 pregnant women who were candidates for elective C-section at Imam Reza Hospital were included. The level of hs-CRP was measured perioperatively. STP was measured after the operation.
Results: Mean hs-CRP was significantly higher in females with STP compared to counterparts (19±13.1 vs. 7.2±4.5; P<0.001). There was a positive and strong correlation between STP and postoperative hs-CRP (P<0.001).
Conclusion: The release of acute-phase proteins (such as hs-CRP) plays a significant role in STP after C-section; the intensity of STP is associated with the level of hs-CRP.
