    Pubic symphysiotomy is a rarely performed procedure in which the pubic symphysis is divided to facilitate vaginal delivery in cases of obstructed labor. Recently, many obstetricians have shown renewed interest in this procedure. The purpose of this paper is to report the long-term radiographic findings for patients who had undergone pubic symphysiotomy compared with the radiographic appearance of a group of age-matched and parity-matched controls.

    Langnickel, D.


    In this book, measurements by clinical, X-ray, ultrasound, CT and MRI pelvimetry are presented. Fetopelvic scores for vertex and breech presentations can facilitate delivery planning. Management of labor, dystocia and relative fetopelvic disproportion are outlined, as well as features distinguishing primigravid from multigravid labor. The book also deals with trial of labor, forceps and vacuum extraction, and their effects on fetal and maternal outcome. Many other aspects, such as shoulder dystocia, hypoxia, symphysiotomy, premature rupture of membranes, episiotomies, cervical scores and the use of cervical dilators, are discussed in detail
