Split apart postpartum: a case report of post partum pubic symphysis diastasis

Aakanksha Mahajan, Ishan Gupta, Pooja Verma.

Abstract
Pubic symphysis diastasis following childbirth via vaginal delivery is a rare but debilitating condition. It is an uncommon and under diagnosed condition resulting in acute pelvic pain and deformity. Since postpartum pain is frequently dismissed as attributable to labor and childbirth, the diagnosis of pubic diastasis is often delayed and sometimes missed altogether. In this article we report a case of 35 years old multigravida with pubic symphysis diastasis presenting on second day post partum . Management consisted of simple conservative treatment with binders and analgesics, which were sufficient in achieving a complete reversal of the condition. A multi-disciplinary approach is essential in both early detection and treatment for satisfactory patient outcomes.

Key words: Pelvic pain, Vaginal delivery, pubic symphysis, diastasis, management
