The standard teaching is to avoid caesarean myomectomy as much as possible for the fear of the attendant severe haemorrhage. Classical caesarean section in spite of its risk of uterine rupture in subsequent pregnancies had been prescribed in its place. We report a case of a 32 year old nullipara ...

Myomectomy during Caesarean section is conventionally reserved for pedunculated myomas. When fibroids located in the lower uterine segment are encountered in pregnancy, due to fear of haemorrhage, obstetricians would prefer to perform a classical Caesarean section even with its high risk of subsequent uterine rupture and avoid the fibroids. We ...

Intracranial hemorrhage in the pregnant patient is a rare cause of peripartum morbidity, and it presents a diagnostic and management dilemma. The case of a term parturient who presented with headache is presented. Clinical suspicion led to the diagnosis of ruptured cerebellar arteriovenous malformation. Optimal timing of interventions, both neurosurgical ...
Obiechina, NJA; ;
Background: A previous ceasarean section is an important variable that influences patient management in subsequent pregnancies. A trial of vaginal delivery in such patients is a feasible alternative to a secondary section, thus aiding to reduce the ceasarean section rate and its associated co-morbidities. Objective: To evaluate outcomes of vaginal ...
