  1. Caesarean section survey in Galway : 1973 through 1987.

    Article - En anglais

    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.
