The authors studied 246 parturients with breech presentation of the fetus. All women were examined by an obstetric monitor. Cesarean section was performed on 33 women/ = 13.41% of women with breech presentation). Perinatal morbidity and mortality were the same as those of women with vertex presentation. The frequency of cesarean section was 11.98% of multiparas and 31.57% of nulliparas. According to the authors careful observation of advancement of delivery as well as the state of the fetus (by an obstetric monitor) could lead to management of delivery with breech presentation just as that of vertex presentation. This management of breech presentations should reduce the fear of delivery, which is observed in most parturients with breech presentation of the fetus.
Keywords: A 1-year study of the management of fetal breech presentation by monitoring follow-up during second-stage labor instead of using external version, x-ray pelvimetry and ultrasonic assessment of fetal weight
