The proportion of deliveries in patients allowed TOLAC was calculated with the equation: patients with successful vaginal delivery (VBAC)/patients with previous C-section in whom labor was attempted.
Between January 2015 and June 2017, 301 cases of TOLAC were recorded; 212 of these cases met with success in Beijing Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital, Capital Medical University.
A retrospective cohort study was conducted on consecutive singleton pregnancies with a previous single low-transverse cesarean section planned for TOLAC at a tertiary teaching hospital with ethical approval by the institutional review board.
Women with two prior low-transverse cesareans also are potential candidates for TOLAC, depending on other predictors of successful VBAC.
Table-2: Comparison of means of maternal characteristics, labour and birth outcomes in women with successful and unsuccessful TOLAC (n = 95).
Using this model, Gilbert and her colleagues estimate savings of $138.6 million per 100,000 women, and that 1,703 quality-adjusted life-years could be gained if TOLAC as a mode of delivery were chosen over ERCD.
These principles were extremely valuable in obtaining informed consent for a TOLAC and ensuring the N family's comprehension and consent during the postpartum repair.
Other recommendations in the AAFP Policy on Trial of Labor After Cesarean (TOLAC) include:
Data are conflicting about the use of TOLAC, and this conflict might be contributing to the declining VBAC rates in California.
After having a previous cesarean delivery (CD), women who subsequently become pregnant inevitably face the decision to undergo a repeat CD or attempt a trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC).
Women who presented with H/O recurrent indication like CPD with no living issue, IUGR and severe oligohydramnios, with foetal distress and non-reassuring FHS and not willing for TOLAC were taken up for repeat L.S.C.S.
Yet, despite all this research and review, rates of a trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC) have increased only modestly in the last several years.
