In the management of the preterm pregnancy, cesarean delivery cannot be supported in the delivery of the preterm (less than 1500 g) cephalic-presenting fetus. Although cesarean may be of benefit in the management of the preterm breech fetus (less than 1500 g), there is yet no perspective randomized clinical trial to support its use.
