Abstract Of the complications of pregnancy and labor, rupture of the uterus is one of the most dangerous. The object of this communication is to present what informative data are available from a study of 44 patients with rupture of the uterus treated in the Peiping Union Medical College Hospital. This study is especially concerned with the treatment of this condition. Although the available literature has been consulted, an exhaustive review is not attempted. The case histories, illustrative of conditions of obstetric practice in this part of the world, are reported briefly. Some problems, such as those caused by osteomalacia, which although common here, is rare elsewhere, are peculiar to this region. One may gain an impression also of the obstetric problems arising in a community in which many of the deliveries are attended by untrained midwives without the slightest idea of asepsis or of the mechanism of labor.
