Vacuum extraction in nonprogressive labor is a relatively safe procedure. Only a few major complications have been reported in the literature. The authors present a case of severe brain damage with rupture of the sinus after vacuum extraction delivery for which surgical repair of the dural tear and brain prolapse was required.
