SUMMARY: with the increase in the rate of cesarean sections, more women experience long-term effects, because more than half develop a defect in the scar after a cesarean section. These defects are related to abnormal bleeding, dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, subfertility and obstetric problems. Evaluate by transvaginal ultrasound the post-cesarean scar in the lower uterine segment in non-pregnant patients and explore the possible factors involved in the healing of the cesarean, the development of scar defects and their association with gynecological symptoms. Our results are similar to those reported in the literature. The RM and the percentage of RM are maintained as important factors in determining the healing of a cesarean. The distance of the scar to the (ICO) a protective factor for the formation of defects, as the elective cesarean is associated with anomalous scars.
