Validity of Clinical and Ultrasound Variables to Predict the Risk of Cesarean Delivery After Induction of Labor
Obstetrics and Gynecology, 06/26/2012
Bertossa P et al. – Of the 537 women included in the analysis, 92 (17%) had a cesarean delivery. There was a poor association between the outcome of labor induction (vaginal delivery or cesarean delivery) and the predicted risk. The evaluated score was not useful to predict the outcome of women undergoing labor induction. The results show the necessity of validating existing scores in different settings and patient populations before widespread implementation in clinical care.
