Title Uterine Rupture During Vaginal Delivery Without Previous History of Cesarean Section
Creator Randall Alan Hamilton
Subject Uterine rupture; vaginal delivery; anesthesia; hemorrhage; cesarean delivery; MSNA
Description Uterine rupture is a potentially catastrophic obstetric complication that may occur antepartum, intrapartum or postpartum.1 It is considered to be an obstetric emergency which threatens the life of both the mother and the newborn.2 Previous cesarean section is recognized as the primary risk factor for uterine rupture in the United States and the rupture of an intact, unscarred uterus is rare.3 Signs and symptoms depend on the extent of the rupture. Anesthetic management for laparotomy, uterine repair, hysterectomy, or hypogastric ligation is similar to that for an actively bleeding, acutely hypovolemic patient.1
