Abstract

Recent studies highlighted the risks of attempted vaginal birth after previous cesareans, especially when trials fail, but have not addressed the long-term risks of an elective repeat cesarean delivery. The assessment of treatment risks by observational studies is subject to bias, because the different treatment groups may not be comparable at the outset. In the absence of better data, the counselling of such women must currently be based on this evidence.
