Symphysiotomy and fetal destructive operations

Symphysiotomy and fetal destructive operations – while rarely, if ever, performed in developed countries – are an option in developing nations of the world. Problems endemic to developing countries not infrequently predispose to patients arriving at health care facilities in a moribund state with neglected labour. The health care provider then has to decide on the options available to him to deliver the mother by the safest route without incurring morbidity and mortality. Under the circumstances, the outcome for the baby will depend on factors prevalent at the time. If the fetus is alive, then the choice is between a Caesarean section and symphysiotomy, and if the fetus has died, a destructive procedure is an option to abdominal-route delivery which carries considerable risk to the mother. The following review outlines the role of symphysiotomy and fetal destructive operations and their role in modern obstetrics. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Best Practice & Research Clinical Obstetrics & Gynaecology Elsevier
