PMID:  3743865     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A full-term newborn infant with severe subcutaneous emphysema of the skull as a complication of vacuum extraction and scalp electrode wound is reported. We hypothesize that detachment of subcutaneous tissue and transmission of the negative pressure associated with the vacuum extraction resulted in entry of air through the scalp electrode wound.
