Fetal hazards of the intrauterine pressure catheter: five case reports.

PMID:  687534     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Five patients with fetal complications associated with the use of an intrauterine pressure catheter in labour are described. In four, a fetal vessel was punctured either by the catheter or its introducing sheath. In the remaining patient, cord compression resulted from entanglement with the catheter. These problems may be minimized by a careful catheter introduction technique.
