Abstract

Fetal dystocia is the result of an unfortunate relationship between fetal anatomy and maternal pelvic capacity. Most commonly, arrest of labor progress occurs at a point at which the problem is solved without significant risk to maternal-fetal welfare by abdominal delivery. This article has, in part, focused upon some rare exceptions and on how to anticipate and deal with them as well as possible.
