In the present study breech was the most common malpresentation
, 334 (41.
6%) and they were more likely to have problems like antepartum haemorrhage (APH) preterm or prolonged labour morbidly adherent placenta and the risk of malpresentation
or an ectopic eventuality in their next pregnancy.
It usually presents with acute abdominal pain and hypovolaemic shock during labour, especially in the parturient with a scarred uterus owing to previous caesarean section or with malpresentation
or second-stage dystocia (1,2).
8 Labour and delivery affected by other malposition and malpresentation
Plagiocephaly may occur during pregnancy due to malpresentation
of the fetus (10 or multiple births, (6) or after birth due to positional or environmental factors.
He also discusses normal labor and delivery (including pain management) and such complications as prolonged labor, shoulder dystocia, malpresentation
, maternal fever, postpartum hemorrhage, and perineal laceration and episiotomy.
A recent study examined baby position changes throughout labor and whether the use of an epidural leads to more malpresentation
There were also lower rates of fetal intolerance, cephalopelvic disproportion, and malpresentation
in the highly exposed cohort.
Criteria mandating transfer included prior cesarean, malpresentation
, multiple gestation, intrauterine growth restriction, severe preeclampsia, placenta previa, significant vaginal bleeding, major fetal anomalies, anticipated preterm delivery (< 36 weeks), nonreassuring fetal heart tones (NRFHTs), and need for labor induction or augmentation with oxytocin.
Elective C-Section: No Emergency C-Section: Yes *** Rules learned If No previous vaginal delivery, and Abnormal 2nd Trimester Ultrasound, and Malpresentation
at admission Then Probability of Emergency C-Section is 0.
At least half the infants were delivered by cesarean when eclampsia (52%), abruptio placenta (57%), fetal distress (63%), dysfunctional labor (64%), cord prolapse (68%), placenta previa (82%), malpresentation
(84%), or cephalopelvic disproportion (98%) were diagnosed (1).
