Caesarean section survey in Galway : 1973 through 1987.
We review the trend, indications and maternal mortality with caesarean section at University College Hospital Galway from 1973 to 1987.
The caesarean section rate (CSR) rose from 6.06% in 1973 to 10.18% in 1987, primary sections from 3.58% to 6.51% and repeat sections from 2.49% to 3.67% during the same interval.
The four major indications for section were cephalopelvic disproportion, foetal distress, previous section and malpresentations.
Lower segment caesarean section was the commonest operation and a slight increase in the classical operation was noted due to an increased intervention in prematurity.
