The consequences of 1,308 attempts at external cephalic version in 866 patients over a 5 year period are reviewed. A fetal mortality rate of 0.9 per cent and an over-all complication rate of 4.4 per cent was found, and the value of attempting external cephalic version in modern obstetric practice is seriously questioned.
