Perineal Model with 4th-Degree Tear for Obstetrics Resident Training

Severe perineal tears are rare events, making it difficult for residents to receive adequate training.

Capstone Summary:

Up to 65% of vaginal deliveries are complicated by some form of tear or episiotomy. Severe tears can lead to long-term complications; however, they are rare enough that residents have few opportunities to receive training from experienced obstetricians. Residents who receive simulation-based training have improved performance, but we do not currently have a model for 4th degree perineal tears.
