Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

The aim of our study was to define the influence of mode of delivery in term breech presentation on the Apgar score and transfert in neonatal care unit using our university hospital protocol.

MATERIAL AND METHOD:

We conducted a retrospective study. The study included 568 singleton term pregnancies during the period January 1996 to December 2005. The main selection criteria were Apgar score and transfert in neonatal care unit.

RESULTS:

Analysis of the Apgar scores at 1.5 and 10min and transfer in neonatal care unit do not show any statistical difference.

CONCLUSION:

The absence of a difference in neonatal prognosis is to allow vaginal delivery to be carried out. To carry on with the teaching of obstetrical manoeuvres makes it possible to avoid pointless surgical intervention and a bad maternofoetal prognosis in the event of an unexpected breech presentation.
