Obstetric management after previous cesarean section

Due to rising cesarean section rates in Germany the knowledge about the management of pregnant women after prior cesarean is mandatory.The informed consent of the pregnant woman is necessary. Success rates and complications have to be discussed thoroughly.Contraindications as prior vertical uterine incision, prior uterine rupture,and persisting reason for the prior cesarean, e.g.,have to be taken into account. Successful vaginal delivery after one cesarean section is feasible approximately in 73%. CME Prakt Fortbild Gynakol Geburtsmed Gynakol Endokrinol 2009; 5(1): 38-43
