Labor after cesarean section the problem of scar dehiscence

Labor after cesarean section the problem of scar dehiscence

South African Medical Journal 71(12): 766-768

Conventional criteria for the prediction and diagnosis of dehiscence of a caesarean section scar during labour were prospectively evaluated. Of 70 patients selected to undergo trial of labour, scar dehiscence occurred in 2 of 35 mothers delivered vaginally and in 4 delivered by caesarean section. Conventional predictive and diagnostic criteria correlated poorly with the occurence of scar dehiscence. These limitations should be recognized and, during trial of labour after caesarean section, emphasis should be placed on careful monitoring of maternal and fetal condition.
