Delivery of the fetal head at cesarean section can sometimes be very difficult, and serious maternal and fetal complications may occur. Recently a new soft, silicone obstetric vacuum cup was introduced for use on the fetal head at vaginal delivery. In 35 cases the cup was used for delivery of the fetal head at cesarean section. It is an effective, harmless alternative to conventional devices, especially in aiding the delivery of the high-floating head occurring spontaneously or occurring after the head impacted deep in the pelvis is dislodged.
