Abstract

This study showed that, in 2002, operative vaginal deliveries still represent a significant amount of vaginal deliveries, a majority of obstetricians do not use both instrument and neonatal associated complications are frequent (3.2%) but rarely severe. Therefore, we believe that every method that allows a safe teaching of operative delivery should be promoted.
