  1. The Mount Sinai cesarean section reduction program : an update after 6 years.

    Article - En anglais

    A six year follow-up evaluation of our original cesarean section reduction program is presented.

    While establishing obstetric practice guidelines was accomplished, two prerequisites remain critical: lowering cesarean utilization was to be accomplished without harm to mother or fetus, and a target rate was prospectively determined.

    The results after 6 years indicate that total cesarean rates of 10-12% can consistently be achieved without adverse outcome.

    Additionally, operative vaginal procedures were employed less that 3% of cases.

    Separate analysis of 580 breech deliveries failed to show an effect of route of delivery on mortality.
