Trends in cesarean section rate over the past decade

, : Trends in cesarean section rate over the past decade. Journal of the American Osteopathic Association 82(12): 902-906

A comparison of the primary cesarean section rate at John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital [Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA] in 1979 with that in 1970 shows that the rate increased from 2.67 to 13.03%. Indications for cesarean section responsible for the observed increase were cephalopelvic disproportion, fetal distress and breech presentation, with the greatest increase occurring for fetal distress. Despite the liberalized use of cesarean section, the percentage of depressed neonates, determined by Apgar scores, showed no statistically significant change. A marked reduction in the incidence of stillbirth was observed.
