Cephalic version in breech presentation

, : Cephalic version in breech presentation. Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine 25(6): 517-524

External cephalic version was done routinely and repeatedly when necessary in a series of 500 consecutive private patients each delivered of a single fetus weighing 1500 g. or more at birth. The number of breech deliveries was reduced to two, an incidence of 0.4%. One of these infants was premature, the other hydrocephalic. All normal term babies were successfully turned. There was no maternal or fetal mortality or morbidity in this series attributable to external version. External cephalic version is a safe and effective means of reducing the frequency of breech deliveries and deserves wider application. The importance of some of the factors influencing fetal position in utero may be judged from observa-tions of spontaneous versions, both cephalic and podalic. These are discussed.
