Objective: The efficacy and safety of external cephalic version (ECV) for breech presentation in the presence of a nuchal cord has not been studied. Here the authors report two cases of failed ECV in the presence of nuchal cord. Case Report: A 28-year-old, G4P3A0, presented at term with breech presentation. Umbilical cord was demonstrated ultrasonographically to be wrapped twice around the neck. External cephalic version was attempted three times with no success. A 25-year-old, G1P0A0, was diagnosed with breech presentation at 36 weeks’ gestation. A nuchal cord was wrapped twice around the fetal neck. ECV was performed three times unsuccessfully. No complications were noted during or after the procedures in both cases. Conclusion: The present findings could suggest a new relative contraindication that should be further investigated.
