Intrapartum management of the low-birth-weight breech fetus
Breech presentation is prevalent among preterm deliveries and contributes to neonatal mortality far beyond its prevalence. The management of a preterm breech delivery is controversial We present our retrospective and part delivered and compare the perinatal outcome between these two groups in terms of perinatal mortality (PPD) and perinatal morbidity (neonatal asphyxia), No statistically significant difference was found for either variable in the two examined groups. We therefore conclude that the method of delivery of low birth weight (1000-2500) breeches has no effect on perinatal out-come.
