Uterine rupture is a full-thickness separation of the uterine wall and the overlying serosa. Though rare, during childbirth uterine rupture is often deadly to the infant and mother. Labor induction, uterine instrumentation, uterine trauma, previous cesarean deliveries, among others, are all risk factors for uterine rupture.

SYMPTOMS:

  • clinically significant uterine bleeding
  • expulsion or protrusion of the fetus, placenta, or both into the abdominal cavity
  • fetal distress
