Trial of labor versus elective repeat cesarean section for the women with a previous cesarean section: a decision analysis. (1/44)

In order to reduce the cesarean-delivery rate, more and more pregnant women are offered trials of labor (TOL) after their previous cesarean sections. TOL and elective repeat cesarean section (ERCS) have different risks and benefits. We constructed a decision analysis to explore this issue. Probabilities were derived from literature reviews. Health state utilities were derived from the authors' clinical judgement. The analysis considered the disutility of the procedures and the disutilities of the morbidity. Using the baseline assumption, ERCS was superior to TOL. One-way sensitivity analyses showed that the result was insensitive to all of the probability estimates and the disutilities of the morbidity. However, the result was sensitive to the patient's preference for ERCS, successful TOL, or failed TOL. The analysis indicates that the best delivery method for a woman who has had a previous cesarean section depends on patient's preference. More patients' preference studies are needed.  (+info)

Unwanted caesarean sections among public and private patients in Brazil: prospective study. (2/44)

OBJECTIVE: To assess and compare the preferences of pregnant women in the public and private sector regarding delivery in Brazil. DESIGN: Face to face structured interviews with women who were interviewed early in pregnancy, about one month before the due date, and about one month post partum. SETTING: Four cities in Brazil. PARTICIPANTS: 1612 pregnant women: 1093 public patients and 519 private patients. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Rates of delivery by caesarean section in public and private institutions; women's preferences for delivery; timing of decision to perform caesarean section. RESULTS: 1136 women completed all three interviews; 476 women were lost to follow up (376 public patients and 100 private patients). Despite large differences in the rates of caesarean section in the two sectors (222/717 (31%) among public patients and 302/419 (72%) among private patients) there were no significant differences in preferences between the two groups. In both antenatal interviews, 70-80% in both sectors said they would prefer to deliver vaginally. In a large proportion of cases (237/502) caesarean delivery was decided on before admission: 48/207 (23%) in women in the public sector and 189/295 (64%) in women in the private sector. CONCLUSIONS: The large difference in the rates of caesarean sections in women in the public and private sectors is due to more unwanted caesarean sections among private patients rather than to a difference in preferences for delivery. High or rising rates of caesarean sections do not necessarily reflect demand for surgical delivery.  (+info)

Ectopic pregnancies in Caesarean section scars: the 8 year experience of one medical centre. (4/44)

BACKGROUND: Our aim was to supplement the mostly individual case reports on the rarely occurring and life-threatening condition of ectopic pregnancy developing in a Caesarean section scar. METHODS AND RESULTS: Eight of all the patients treated in our department between 1995 and 2002 had been diagnosed for ectopic pregnancy that developed in a Caesarean section scar. They comprised this case series group. Four of them underwent methotrexate treatment; one had expectant management, one transcervical aspiration of the gestational sac and two by open surgery. All the non-surgically treated women had an uneventful outcome. One underwent a term Caesarean hysterectomy and the other first trimester hysterotomy and excision of the pregnancy located in the scarred uterus. Analysis of all these women's obstetric history revealed that five of them (63%) had been previously operated because of breech presentation, one had a cervical pregnancy and one had placenta previa. Four of them (50%) had multiple (> or = 2) Caesarean sections. CONCLUSIONS: The women at risk for pregnancy in a Caesarean section scar appear to be those with a history of placental pathology, ectopic pregnancy, multiple Caesarean sections and Caesarean breech delivery. Heightened awareness of this possibility and early diagnosis by means of transvaginal sonography can improve outcome and minimize the need for emergency extended surgery.  (+info)

Sonographic imaging of cervical scars after Cesarean section. (5/44)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether uterine contractions at the time of a Cesarean section have an impact on future presence and location of a cervical Cesarean scar. METHODS: A targeted transvaginal ultrasound examination of the fetus, uterus and cervix was done in 2973 consecutive women at 14-16 weeks' gestation. The sonographer was blinded to the women's previous obstetric histories. The presence and location of a sonographic cervical hypoechogenic line, which probably represented a Cesarean scar, was recorded. RESULTS: There were 180 women with a previous Cesarean section performed before the start of uterine contractions and 173 with a Cesarean section performed during contractions in labor. The cervical hypoechogenic line was more common in sections performed during contractions (75.7% vs. 52.7%; P < 0.001) and was more distally located from the internal os (17.9 +/- 9.4 vs. 14.6 +/- 9.1 mm; P = 0.01). A hypoechogenic line was observed in 21/2620 women without a previous Cesarean section, representing a false-positive rate of 0.8%. CONCLUSION: Cesarean sections, especially those done during uterine contractions, are actually performed through cervical tissue. This finding is in agreement with the physiological process of cervical effacement during contractions.  (+info)

Maternal and perinatal outcomes associated with a trial of labor after prior cesarean delivery. (6/44)

BACKGROUND: The proportion of women who attempt vaginal delivery after prior cesarean delivery has decreased largely because of concern about safety. The absolute and relative risks associated with a trial of labor in women with a history of cesarean delivery, as compared with elective repeated cesarean delivery without labor, are uncertain. METHODS: We conducted a prospective four-year observational study of all women with a singleton gestation and a prior cesarean delivery at 19 academic medical centers. Maternal and perinatal outcomes were compared between women who underwent a trial of labor and women who had an elective repeated cesarean delivery without labor. RESULTS: Vaginal delivery was attempted by 17,898 women, and 15,801 women underwent elective repeated cesarean delivery without labor. Symptomatic uterine rupture occurred in 124 women who underwent a trial of labor (0.7 percent). Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy occurred in no infants whose mothers underwent elective repeated cesarean delivery and in 12 infants born at term whose mothers underwent a trial of labor (P<0.001). Seven of these cases of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy followed uterine rupture (absolute risk, 0.46 per 1000 women at term undergoing a trial of labor), including two neonatal deaths. The rate of endometritis was higher in women undergoing a trial of labor than in women undergoing repeated elective cesarean delivery (2.9 percent vs. 1.8 percent), as was the rate of blood transfusion (1.7 percent vs. 1.0 percent). The frequency of hysterectomy and of maternal death did not differ significantly between groups (0.2 percent vs. 0.3 percent, and 0.02 percent vs. 0.04 percent, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: A trial of labor after prior cesarean delivery is associated with a greater perinatal risk than is elective repeated cesarean delivery without labor, although absolute risks are low. This information is relevant for counseling women about their choices after a cesarean section.  (+info)

Predicting cesarean section and uterine rupture among women attempting vaginal birth after prior cesarean section. (7/44)

BACKGROUND: There is currently no validated method for antepartum prediction of the risk of failed vaginal birth after cesarean section and no information on the relationship between the risk of emergency cesarean delivery and the risk of uterine rupture. METHODS AND FINDINGS: We linked a national maternity hospital discharge database and a national registry of perinatal deaths. We studied 23,286 women with one prior cesarean delivery who attempted vaginal birth at or after 40-wk gestation. The population was randomly split into model development and validation groups. The factors associated with emergency cesarean section were maternal age (adjusted odds ratio [OR] = 1.22 per 5-y increase, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.16 to 1.28), maternal height (adjusted OR = 0.75 per 5-cm increase, 95% CI: 0.73 to 0.78), male fetus (adjusted OR = 1.18, 95% CI: 1.08 to 1.29), no previous vaginal birth (adjusted OR = 5.08, 95% CI: 4.52 to 5.72), prostaglandin induction of labor (adjusted OR = 1.42, 95% CI: 1.26 to 1.60), and birth at 41-wk (adjusted OR = 1.30, 95% CI: 1.18 to 1.42) or 42-wk (adjusted OR = 1.38, 95% CI: 1.17 to 1.62) gestation compared with 40-wk. In the validation group, 36% of the women had a low predicted risk of caesarean section (< 20%) and 16.5% of women had a high predicted risk (> 40%); 10.9% and 47.7% of these women, respectively, actually had deliveries by caesarean section. The predicted risk of caesarean section was also associated with the risk of all uterine rupture (OR for a 5% increase in predicted risk = 1.22, 95% CI: 1.14 to 1.31) and uterine rupture associated with perinatal death (OR for a 5% increase in predicted risk = 1.32, 95% CI: 1.02 to 1.73). The observed incidence of uterine rupture was 2.0 per 1,000 among women at low risk of cesarean section and 9.1 per 1,000 among those at high risk (relative risk = 4.5, 95% CI: 2.6 to 8.1). We present the model in a simple-to-use format. CONCLUSIONS: We present, to our knowledge, the first validated model for antepartum prediction of the risk of failed vaginal birth after prior cesarean section. Women at increased risk of emergency caesarean section are also at increased risk of uterine rupture, including catastrophic rupture leading to perinatal death.  (+info)

Asymptomatic abdominal wall endometrioma 15 years after cesarean section. (8/44)

Abdominal wall endometriosis is rare and its diagnosis is difficult. However, the consequences may be serious, like recurrences or even malignant transformation. We report a rarer case of asymptomatic abdominal wall endometrioma, accidentally found during a surgical procedure for a second cesarean section, in a 39-years old patient, without any relevant history of endometriosis. The tumor was subcutaneous, 3/3 cm in size, located in the left angle of the incision from the 15 years previously performed cesarean section and freely mobile in relation with the skin and the fascia. It was excised, with clear margins (to prevent recurrences), during the procedure. The patient was discharged after five days. The postoperative period and the follow-up at one and three months were uneventful. The pathological examination clarified the diagnosis by revealing an endometrioma with decidual reaction. Such a condition may be, therefore, evoked before an abdominal wall tumor, even without specific symptoms, even in a 39-years old woman and longtime after the possible causal surgery. Pathological examination remains the ultimate diagnostic tool. Relevant prophylactic attitude at the end of the cesarean section may be considered.  (+info)

The baby came out fine, but for the mother we suspected one of most feared complications in obstetrics - that her placenta had burrowed deep into the muscle of the uterus.. To get oxygen and nutrients to the fetus, the placenta needs to attach just a few millimeters deep into the uterus. We worried that hers had gone much farther and might eat through the entire thickness of the uterus, keeping it from shrinking back to its normal size after delivery and causing a massive hemorrhage. We gave a gentle tug on the umbilical cord. Usually the placenta peels off with such gentle pulling, but hers remained stuck - an ominous sign.. The case points out a fundamental truth about surgical delivery: a first cesarean for most women leads to a cesarean with every pregnancy. And while a first section is quick, easy to perform, and rarely complicated, each repeat surgery carries greater risk. More and more women are finding themselves on the C-section path. Almost one in three babies was delivered by cesarean ...
After a cesarean delivery at 30 weeks, a 1430-gram premature female neonate was noted to have generalized thick, dark brown scale forming a tight membrane over her entire skin surface.

BACKGROUND: Uncertainty exists about benefits and harms of a planned vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC) compared with elective repeat caesarean (ERC). We conducted a prospective restricted cohort study consisting of a patient preference cohort study, and a small nested randomised trial to compare benefits and risks of a planned ERC with planned VBAC. METHODS AND FINDINGS: 2,345 women with one prior caesarean, eligible for VBAC at term, were recruited from 14 Australian maternity hospitals. Women were assigned by patient preference (n = 2,323) or randomisation (n = 22) to planned VBAC (1,225 patient preference, 12 randomised) or planned ERC (1,098 patient preference, ten randomised). The primary outcome was risk of fetal death or death of liveborn infant before discharge or serious infant outcome. Data were analysed for the 2,345 women (100%) and infants enrolled. The risk of fetal death or liveborn infant death prior to discharge or serious infant outcome was significantly lower for infants ...

Cesarean section is associated with an increased risk for early hysterectomy and therefore may jeopoardize womens long term reproductive health.
A number of studies have found that institutional factors are more influential than natural factors on the delivery workload.4-7 Despite the fact that scheduled cesarean deliveries at our institution account for 53% of our total cesarean deliveries, the scheduled ones did not appear to impact the overall cesarean workload pattern. Our results show that despite a bias toward more scheduled cesarean deliveries earlier in the week, the peak workload occurs in the latter part of the week. We are not sure why this workload bias exists. Clinicians may increase cesarean deliveries on Thursday and Friday in anticipation of the weekend. Induction policies may influence overall cesarean delivery times more than do scheduled deliveries. We did not find that cesarean and total deliveries were significantly reduced over the weekend. Reduced weekend and night coverage may give clinicians the impression of an increased workload ...

Isthmocele is a pouch-like defect on the anterior wall of the uterus at the isthmus. It appears as a fluid-filled pouch in the anterior uterine wall at the site of a previous cesarean section scar. The flow of blood during menstruation through the cervical region may be hampered by the presence of isthmocele. This is because the blood may accumulate in the pouch-like defect because of the presence of fibrotic tissue. This can also cause pelvic pain in the suprapubic area, infertility and abnormal post menstrual bleeding. The global incidence is somewhere between 6.2% and 36%, with an average rate of 21.1%.[1] These symptoms, taken together, have been closely investigated and are called cesarean scar syndrome.[2] Other complications of cesarean scar defect include complications occurring during subsequent pregnancy such as scar dehiscence, scar ectopic pregnancy, placenta previa and accreta. Complications can occur during gynecological procedures like uterine evacuation, hysteroscopy, or during ...

METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of all patients undergoing a trial of labor after prior cesarean delivery over a 12-year period. We analyzed the labors of women with one prior cesarean and no prior vaginal deliveries. The uterine rupture rate was determined with respect to maternal age. Multiple logistic regression was used to control for potential confounding variables. RESULTS: Overall, 32 (1.1%) uterine ruptures occurred among 3015 women. For women younger than 30 years, the risk of uterine rupture was 0.5%, and for those women ...
The rate of cesarean delivery in the United States is at a record high and continues to increase. Conversely, rates of vaginal birth after cesarean delivery (VBAC) have declined (to 12.7 percent in 2002 from 28.3 percent in 1996). Childbirth accounts for about one quarter of hospital admissions for U.S. women. Guise and colleagues conducted an extensive review to evaluate the benefits and harms of VBAC and elective repeat cesarean delivery.. The authors searched electronic databases for relevant published articles, systematic reviews, clinical trials, and reports. They also sought evidence from reference lists and contacted experts for recommendations. Relevant evidence arising since the 1980 National Institutes of Health Consensus Development Conference on VBAC was sought. Clinical studies conducted in developed countries were eligible for inclusion if they contained at least 10 patients and provided data about uterine rupture, VBAC rates, and maternal and fetal outcomes, and were not focused ...

The VBAC segment was not only mostly one-sided, the risks were over inflated and misrepresented. The title of the segment is a load of crap, because it really DOESNT talk much about what a womans options are. It shows the incredible amount of unbalanced information that is out there, especially from OBs. A sound resembling a dying cat escaped my throat every time I heard the words, attempt a VBAC, try to have a VBAC, and trial of labor. Yes, this is OB lingo. And while I will agree that in the hospital it really IS attempting a VBAC, because hospital VBAC attempts are rarely successful...and even less so if we look at the big picture and include women that start out interested in having a VBAC, and then are dissuaded by the OB...it is hurtful language. I believe in the power of words. What if we told each mom who wanted a natural birth that she was, attempting a natural birth, or that she could, try for a natural birth? What does this imply? This, to me (and many other women) ...
In a large number of cases, the imperial cut managed to save both the baby and the mother, but many women demand it regardless of whether they can give birth in a natural way, and they are not really aware of the consequences of car crashes and do not know many benefits, but also disadvantages and one and another procedure.. Scientific research has proven that the cesarean section is much more dangerous than the normal birth process because the cesarean cuts a lot of bleeding and hence blood clots are formed quickly and thus can cause death.. In addition, the main cause and main difference between these two births is to make a cut on the stomach, which automatically leads to a longer recovery time, and this is considerable and even in some cases up to a month.. In some cases, when carousel is caused by caesarean section, there may be dangerous uterine rupture, urinary bladder injury, and a large number of intestines, and many experts advise that women are naturally occurring.. ...
Hi! Question for the btdt moms who have had a vbac before. I had an emergency c-section with my son almost 2 years ago.

Vaginal birth after Caesarean Section (VBAC) carries risks of uterine rupture, with increased perinatal mortality risk. When labour is induced there may be higher uterine rupture and repeat caesarean section (CS) rates in women with previous CS, compared to when labour starts spontaneously.1 The method of induction of labour (IOL) in women with previous CS remains controversial, as there is a higher risk of uterine rupture when prostaglandins (PGs) are used compared with the use of non-prostaglandin methods.2 For women with previous CS, NICE guidance recommends PGs for routine use in IOL,3 however, obstetricians concerned about the increased uterine rupture risk may prefer to offer elective CS instead, therefore increasing CS rates.. Comparisons between the use of cervical dilator balloon catheters versus PGs in nulliparous women have shown similar efficacy in establishing labour, without the risks of uterine hyperstimulation or rupture.4 5 IOL with Cook cervical dilator balloon was introduced ...
METHODS: Women undergoing elective repeat cesarean section with subarachnoid anesthesia (0.5% hyperbaric bupivacaine 8-10 mg and sufentanil 5 μg) were enrolled in a double-blind, randomized study.

The control group (N.=28) received placebo. Paracetamol and patient controlled analgesia with intravenous morphine were given postoperatively. Von Frey filaments were used to assess pain threshold on the inner forearm and T10-T11 dermatomes (supposed hyperalgesic area ...
Women who have had a prior c-section have the option of a undergoing vaginal birth after c-section (VBAC) or an elective repeat c-section. A successful vaginal birth carries a lower risk to the woman than does a repeat c-section. Women undergoing a vaginal delivery will generally have an easier recovery with fewer problems after delivery and a shorter hospital stay than those who have a c-section.. However, there are certain individuals who are more likely to be successful for a VBAC than others. If your prior cesarean section had been performed for a fetal issue (I.e. baby was breech, heart rate was worrisome, etc.), the likelihood of a successful VBAC approaches 85%. If your prior cesarean section was done for a maternal reason (i.e. stopped dilating, baby didnt fit through the pelvis), the likelihood of a successful VBAC is only around 50%.. There are risks associated with undergoing a VBAC. The most serious risk is that of uterine rupture. In most cases, cesarean sections are performed with ...
Caesarean section (CS) has short and long-term health effects for both the woman and her baby. One of the greatest contributors to the CS rate is elective repeat CS. Vaginal birth after caesarean (VBAC) is an option for many women; despite this the proportion of women attempting VBAC remains low. Potentially the relationship that women have with their healthcare professional may have a major influence on the uptake of VBAC. Models of service delivery, which enable an individual approach to care, may make a difference to the uptake of VBAC. Midwifery continuity of care could be an effective model to encourage and support women to choose VBAC. A randomised, controlled trial will be undertaken. Eligible pregnant women, whose most recent previous birth was by lower-segment CS, will be randomly allocated 1:1 to an intervention group or control group. The intervention provides midwifery continuity of care to women through pregnancy, labour, birth and early postnatal care. The control group will receive
Any woman in labor-not just one attempting a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)-might have complications during childbirth that require a cesarean section delivery.. If there is no medical reason for a cesarean, vaginal delivery is generally a safe option for both mother and baby. It is common, though, to fear going through labor after having had a cesarean delivery. This is especially true for women who have tried a vaginal birth but, after a long and difficult labor, ended up delivering by cesarean.. The ultimate decision to try a vaginal birth is made by you and your doctor. If you want to try a VBAC but your doctor is not in favor of your choice and does not have a clear reason, consider getting a second opinion.. If you are considering VBAC, talk with your doctor about:. ...
The inclusion criteria for skin-to-skin contact candidates were foundational to the protocol development. The families included experienced nonemergent, elective, repeat cesarean deliveries, or cesarean deliveries performed because of a failure to progress/dilate or breech presentation. The infants were greater than 38 weeks of gestation and in no acute distress. Role responsibilities were developed for the neonatal registered nurse, certified registered nurse anesthetist/anesthesiologist, circulating registered nurse, delivering physician, scrub technician, the mother, and the mothers support person. The protocol included a surgical unit that was setup to allow the mother to select music, provided the use of dim lighting, provided extra sterile plastic cord clamp on field, and positioned warmed blankets and an infant cap near the head of the mothers bed. The protocol of family education was to discuss with the mother and her support person one of the following three options: (a) observe the ...

Dear Ona. I submitted your question to ob/gyn Anthony Dardano, MD and here is his response:. While I certainly agree this delivery should be via cesarean section, I strongly disagree that future pregnancies are dangerous. Over the years I have performed multiple repeat cesareans on the same patient without any problem at all. Modern surgical techniques with absorbable suture material really place no limit on the number of pregnancies a uterus can support. The danger comes with possible rupture with the force of labor contractions and that is why I stated that repeat cesarean section is the indicated delivery route.. Tubal ligation is never morally permissible for the direct intention of preventing pregnancy. This is a moral principle which cannot be violated. Pray to Our Lady to guide you in making this important moral decision.. May God bless you. Anthony N Dardano, MD, FACS, FACOG ...
One of the most controversial topics in Obstetrics is VBAC* (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Section). Before the 1970s, the rule of thumb was Once a C-section, always a C-section. When a C-section is performed, an incision is cut in the lower part of the uterus. It is sutured back together after the baby is delivered, but it is always weaker than the surrounding tissue. The concern for allowing someone to labor after a C-section is that the uterine scar might break open due to the force of the contractions. Studies in the late seventies showed that the actual occurrence of rupture was low and it was safe to consider VBAC in the appropriate candidates. With increasing C-section rates, the opportunity for VBAC increased until the mid-90s when the VBAC rate peaked at 28%. However, with increased number of VBAC, we saw increased complications. A lot of women were getting VBACs who were not ideal candidates and at that point the dangers of induction with VBAC were not fully realized. VBAC also ...
By Christ-Ann Magloire, MD. Serenity Holistic OB/GYN & Wellness Spa. What is a VBAC?. Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC) is the term applied to any vaginal delivery that occurs following a Cesarean section. A VBAC may be chosen for multiple reasons and is associated with unique risks and benefits.. Once upon a time, after a Cesarean delivery had occurred, the standard of care was to continue performing Cesareans in any subsequent deliveries. This pattern was initially used to avoid the higher chances of a uterine rupture, which was a problem in early practice. Thankfully, due to todays more advanced Cesarean approaches - specifically in the lower, less contractile segments of the uterus - the risks of rupture have been been greatly reduced.. What are the benefits?. Given the accompanying emotions during childbirth, a vaginal delivery can often offer a more connected experience, thus promoting bonding and the opportunity for an authentic delivery. As well, there is less blood loss, wound ...

According to this study, the socio-demographic factors are related to the incidence of caesarean sections in Mozambique. The connection was found by carrying out cross tabulations, Pearson`s χ2- tests and logistic regression analyses. In 1994-1997 age group and parity were associated with incidence of caesarean sections when adjusted with all confounders. The older the mother was, the higher was the risk of a caesarean section. Women having their first child had caesarean section more often than women having at least their second or third child. People living in urban areas more likely receive a caesarean section than those in rural areas. In 1998-2003, in addition to age, parity and area of residence, the study found the wealth index to be the strongly associated socio-demographic factor for caesarean section. Caesarean sections were more common among women who-or whose partners-were highly educated. Socio-demographical factors, especially parity, have stronger association in incidence of ...
