Introduction: Caesarean section is one of the oldest operations performed from around sixteen century. Different method of uterine incision studied extensively but there are very limited studies on abdominal incision. Types of incisions: Vertical, Pfannenstiel, Maylard etc. The Joel-Cohen incision has advantages compared to the Pfannenstiel incision. Closure: Closure of the subcutaneous fat may reduce wound complications but it is unclear to what extent these differences affect the well-being and satisfaction of the women concerned. No adequate study available about the advantage and disadvantage of material used in skin closure. Conclusion: It is a fascinating fact that although caesarean section is one of the oldest surgeries in mankind there is no unanimous agreement about different techniques among experts in abdominal incision and closure.
