This article summarizes the current state of knowledge of obstetric vacuum extraction. The discussed topics include the history of vacuum extraction, indications and contraindications, technique of the procedure, currently marketed instruments, special uses of the vacuum extractor, comparison of vacuum extraction with forceps delivery, and maternal and fetal outcomes. Areas of controversy are identified and discussed. Vacuum extraction is replacing forceps as the preferred method of instrumental delivery.
