Abstract

Transcervical examination of a prior cesarean scar after vaginal delivery is commonly advised. A retrospective study of 1023 parturients with prior cesarean delivery was undertaken, 475 of whom delivered vaginally. Thirteen cases of scar dehiscence were found at laparotomy, and only one case was discovered by transcervical examination. The value of routine postdelivery examination of uterine scar is doubtful. 1992 Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand
