Abstract

Abstract This retrospective study evaluates the prospects of allowing a vaginal breech to follow a previous lower segment cesarean section by examining data from Farwania Hospital, Kuwait where 33 (38.4%) of 86 patients with a previous cesarean section with fetuses in breech presentation were given a chance for vaginal delivery. The remaining 53 patients were deliverd by lower segment cesarean section. Out of 53 patients, 34 patients were sectioned because of the presence of uterine scar. The other 19 patients were sectioned because of the additional presence of other obstetric complications such as diabetes, pre-eclamptic toxemia or large fetus. This group of patients was excluded from comparison.
