KAC, Gilberto et al. Factors associated to cesarean sections and abortions in women selected from a health clinic in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Rev. Bras. Saude Mater. Infant. [online]. 2007, vol.7, n.3, pp.271-280. ISSN 1806-9304.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1519-38292007000300006.

OBJECTIVES: to investigate factors potentially associated to cesarean sections and abortions. METHODS: data from a cohort study during postpartum were analyzed for 352 women aged 15-45 years old. The following outcomes were studied: cesarean sections and abortions prior to current pregnancy. Statistical analysis included multivariate logistic regression models with hierarchical approach. RESULTS: c-sections and abortions prevalence were 36.3% and 34.0%, respectively. The final model indicated that the following variables remained associated to cesarean sections: level 1: Caucasian white (OR=2.02; 95%CI: 1.29-3.16); level 2: tubal ligation (OR=19.68; 95%CI: 5.77-67.15). The following variables remained associated to abortion occurrence: level 1: age >29 years (OR=6.11; 95%CI: 2.94-12.72); marital status: married (OR=4.22; 95%CI: 2.03-8.78), single (OR=3.70; 95%CI: 1.59-8.61). CONCLUSIONS: white Caucasian women and tubal ligation were potentially associated co-variables for cesarean sections performance while marital status and maternal age were associated to abortions, prevalent in women over 29 years old.
