Case description

Almost in every country, the Caesarean section (CS) delivery ratio has been gradually increasing. Among the orthopaedic conditions, only a few are absolute indications for CS, such as pelvic deformations, which is mechanical obstacle in delivery. In addition, we can also name conditions such as pelvic injury or history of pelvic treatments (e.g. acetabular osteotomy) which may affect the way of childbirth. A full-text scientific publication search in PubMed and review of the latest guidelines was conducted. Following phrases were applied in the search strategy: ‘Caesarean section’, ‘complications’, ‘labour’, ‘orthopaedic indications’, and ‘pregnancy’. Orthopaedic indications are usually elective, so every case should be thoroughly considered before the time of delivery.
