The indications for cesarean section can be divided into two classes: (1) the absolute, in which there is no question of choice, and (2) the relative, in which a choice of methods of delivery exists, but cesarean section seems to give the best chance of safety for both mother and child In order to cut back the frequency of caesarean sections, today it would be more reasonable to differentiate the absolute indications, being unquestionable justifications according to the standards..
Indications. A planned or 'elective' Caesarean section is performed for a variety of indications.The following are the most common, but this is not an exhaustive list: Breech presentation (at term) - planned Caesarean sections for breech presentation at term have increased significantly since the 'Term Breech Trial' [Lancet, 2000]. Other malpresentations - e.g. unstable lie (a. Indications for Cesarean Section by ACOG - 2011 Many indications exist for performing a cesarean delivery. In those women who are having a scheduled procedure (ie, an elective or indicated repeat, for malpresentation or placental abnormalities), the decision made is that vaginal delivery is least optimal
Caesarean section rates have been steadily increasing due to a higher number of sections for fetal distress, as diagnosed by cardiotocographic (CTG) monitoring in labour, and their increasing use for breech and multiple pregnancy.However, the greatest contribution to the current high caesarean rates comes from elective repeat caesarean section (ERCS) Absolute Indications for Cesarean Section (1) Failed induction (2) Fetal distress (3) Cephalopelvic disproportion (4) Dystocia (5) Malposition (Breech, occipitoposterior) Common Indications for Cesarean Section - primi gravida (4) Anterpartum hemorrhage (5) Malpresentation (6) Hypertensive disorders. Relative Indications for Cesarean. Relative indications of cesarean section. Relative (from the mother and fetal) indications arise if the possibility of delivery through the natural birth can not be ruled out, but with a high risk of perinatal mortality and a threat to the health or life of the mother indication of C-section in public and private facilities is needed to ensure rational use of the procedure. Background Caesarean section (C-section) is a major obstetric intervention introduced in late Nineteenth century to save lives of women and their newborns from life-threatening pregnancy and child-birth related complications

MEDICINE REVIEW ARTICLE Indications for and Risks of Elective Cesarean Section Ioanni Absolute indications (Box 1) are responsible for less than 10% of all deliveries by cesarean section in Germany (e23). Most cesarian sections are thus performed for relative indications (Box 2) . The absolute indications and relative indications are as follows. Absolute Indications Absolute indications are cephalopelvic disproportion, pla-centa previa, abruptio placentae, transverse lie, triplet preg
While common indications for a planned cesarean section include previous cesarean section and twin delivery (Penn and Ghaem-Maghami, 2001), cesarean section can also be requested by the mother. cesarean section fetal macrosomia, unfavorable cervix to labor induction, psychopathy.3 The delivery of the cesarean section can save the life of both the mother and the fetus when correctly indicated. This indication should occur when there are situations in which it is not possible to opt for normal birth. Most cesarean indications are relative. In general the indications of caesarean section divided into two categories: absolute and relative. The absolute indications are cephalo-pelvic disproportion, previous uterine surgery, prior uterine rupture and previous successful repair of vesico-vaginal fistula. The relative CESAREAN SECTION: INDICATIONS FOR AND RELATIVE MERITS OF THE CLASSIC, LOW AND Up to that time it was so dangerous as to be applicable only to what was known as the absolute degree of pelvic contracture, because of which not even a mutilated dead baby could be otherwise removed from its mother's body, and the relative degree of contracture.

Of the more than 4 million births a year, one in three is now a cesarean. A better understanding of the clinical indications contributing to the current prevalence in primary cesarean rates can inform prevention strategies The literature of the last decade shows that a large number of obstetricians are resorting to the low or cervical cesarean section instead of the cla
The most common indications for emergency CS were failure to progress in 75.9% of cases, followed by fetal distress and cord prolapse in 10.3% and 6.9%, respectively. The most common indications for elective CS were large baby in 56.25%, followed by intrauterine growth retardation and infertility in 12.5% of cases each Group 2 (nulliparous with single cephalic full-term pregnancy, prelabour cesarean section) had third highest absolute contribution with 152 (4,18%) of all births, and the third highest relative contribution of all CS with 15,78% Indications for cesarean section are absolute or relative. Any condition that makes delivery via the birth canal impossible is an absolute indication for abdominal delivery. Among these are extreme degrees of pelvic contraction and neoplasms blocking the passage Therefore, when comparing a trial of labor with a cesarean delivery, one must recognize that although there is a lower risk for many of the complications discussed below when the delivery is vaginal, the risks associated with a cesarean section performed in labor are greater than those associated with planned deliveries
Among the 14 medical cesarean indications, pregnancy complications occupied the highest proportion (n = 5530, 24.32%), followed by scarred uterus (n = 4719, 20.75%), complicated with tumor (n = 2403, 10.57%), placenta previa (n = 2252, 9.90%), abnormal fetal position (n = 1708, 7.51%), twin or multiple pregnancies (n = 1688, 7.42%), fetal macrosomia (n = 1305, 5.74%), and the other indications with a proportion < 5% (Additional file 3: Table S1) Indications for cesarean section at St. Joseph Medical Hospital 21 - Maternal indications 21 - Fetal indications 23 - Other indications 23 - Indications that where not present in our material 23 - Emergency indications 24 - Differences in indications between nulliparous and multiparous women 25. 2) There is a correlation between parity of mother to cesarean section, chi square test confidence level 95%, p value 0,01 <0,05.

Indications for caesarean delivery for maternal benefit include any situation in which it is inadvisable to continue to strive for a vaginal delivery out of concern for maternal outcome Cesarean delivery on maternal request is defined as a primary cesarean delivery on maternal request in the absence of any maternal or fetal indications. Cesarean delivery rates in the United States are at the highest levels ever, with more than 1.3 million cesarean deliveries (32% of all births) performed in 2015 1
Several cases over the years have emerged when courts had to weigh in on the medical recommendation of a cesarean delivery when a patient has refused. One of the first and most notable cases took place in 1990 in Washington D.C. 6 A young pregnant woman who had terminal cancer was forced to undergo a cesarean section at the order of a lower. Maternal age at delivery has increased during recent decades, as has the rate of cesarean section (CS) .In 2014 in Norway, the average age at first childbirth was 28.7 years, 20 % of women were 35 years or older at delivey and the CS rate was 16.5 % .Advanced maternal age is associated with an increased risk of obesity , hypertensive diseases [4-6] and diabetes [4-6], and obstetric. Hospitals are described according to their geographic distribution and cesarean section rates, using absolute and relative frequencies. Results. The proportions of newborns by Robson groups were similar to those proposed by the World Health Organization, except for Group 5 (with previous cesarean section) and Group 10 (preterm), with regional. In the past century, however, cesarean delivery has transformed from occasional lifesaving surgery to the most commonly performed laparotomy, accounting for 1 in 14 of all surgical procedures worldwide in 2012 . The indications for its use, once lethal and absolute, have been supplemented with many relative indications

Design This is a secondary analysis of the nationally representative 2013 Nigeria Demographic and Health Survey (NDHS) data. We carried out frequency tabulation, χ2 test, simple logistic regression and multivariable binary logistic regression analyses to achieve the study objective Cesarean delivery is one amongst the foremost common surgical procedures in women during their reproductive years , accounting for 18.6% of all births. Cesarean-section (CS) rates range from 6 to 27.2% in the least and most developed regions, respectively. Unfortunately, Egypt accounts for the highest CS rates in Africa (51.8%)
<i>Background.</i> Addressing inequalities in accessing emergency obstetric care is crucial for reducing the maternal mortality ratio. This study was undertaken to examine the time trends and sociodemographic correlates of cesarean section (CS) utilization in Nepal between 2006 and 2016<i>. Methods.</i> Data from the Nepal Demographic and Health Surveys (NDHS) 2006, 2011, and 2016 were sourced. The overall cesarean section rate was recorded, and the size, cesarean section rate, and absolute and relative contributions were calculated within each group. Results. The overall cesarean section rate was 56.8%. The highest relative contribution to this rate came from Robson groups 5, 2 and 10, respectively Attempted vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) is associated with higher rates of adverse effects or death for mothers and infants, although absolute rates were low in mothers who attempted this. rate of cesarean section, though there is no clear evidence on the relative benefits of higher or lower rates. The overall cesarean section rates have increased progressively over many parts of the world, including Jordan, in particular in the past ten years.(1,2,3) The indications for cesarean sections ar The absolute and relative risks associated with a trial of labor in women with a history of cesarean delivery, as compared with elective repeated cesarean delivery without labor, are uncertain.
Cesarean section is the most commonly performed surgical procedure in the United States, with nearly 1.3 million cases performed each year, approximately 32% of all deliveries.1 The purpose of this article is to review the steps in a cesarean delivery and examine the best available evidence for performing the procedure.

Results National caesarean section rates ranged from 0.6% in South Sudan to 58.9% in the Dominican Republic common indications for caesarean section are repeat section, dystocia, fetal distress and malpresentation. The indications of caesarean section can be absolute like severe cephalopelvic disproportion or major degree of placenta previa and relative like accidental hemorrhage, failed induction or malpresentation (Pandey Nagendra Sardesh, 2006).
Another indication for cesarean hysterectomy is postpartum hemorrhage,  which most commonly results from uterine atony (failure of the uterus to contract into a firm muscle after delivery of the placenta). Several uterotonic medications are available to control obstetric hemorrhage, and several procedures may be used when medications fail, such as balloon tamponade (ie, Bakri balloon) as. Advanced maternal age is associated with increased risk of cesarean section in women undergoing labor induction with a single cephalic presentation at term without a previous cesarean section. The absolute risk of cesarean section is 3‐5 times higher across 5‐year age groups in nulliparous relative to multiparous women having induced labor
Women's preference for cesarean section varied from 0.3 to 14 percent; however, only 3 studies looked directly at this preference in the absence of clinical indications. Women's preference for a cesarean section related to psychological factors, perceptions of safety, or in some countries, was influenced by cultural or social factors •Cesarean section (CS) - a surgical operation Indications •Absolute -vaginal delivery is not possible •Relative - vaginal delivery may be possible, but risks to the mother and baby are high.

Anaesthesia guidelines recommend regional anaesthesia for most caesarean sections due to the risk of failed intubation and aspiration with general anaesthesia. However, general anaesthesia is considered to be safe for the foetus, based on limited evidence, and is still used for caesarean sections.

The indi-cations for elective CS might be: neurological, ophthalmic, orthopedic, hematologic, cardiologic and psychiatric. In these recommendations, however, it was not discussed which mental disorders are absolute or relative indication for caesarean birth

Women with absolute medical indications for caesarean section were excluded (n = 430). 2.1. Patient Selection . This study was undertaken in Taihe Hospital in Shiyan. This study was a was carried out between Decembe In the other groups, non-absolute indications were the leading indications for performing CS—group 1 (fetal compromise), groups 2 and 4 (failure to progress), group 5 (previous CS), groups 6,7 and 8 (breech presentation). In general, CS was performed for absolute maternal indications in 36.6% (359/980) of cases
Countrywide, less than 36% of C-sections were found to be clinically justified by parallel analysis of absolute or relative indications. Acute fetal distress (AFD) was more frequently reported in private centers compared to public ones (446 per 10 000 live births versus 274 per 10 000) The absolute risk of anesthetic-related maternal mortality is low in the United States for both general and regional anesthesia. indications for cesarean delivery but less likely for emergent.
In 2014, rates of low-risk first-birth cesarean were 26.0% in both the US and in California. By 2019, rates in California surpassed the Healthy People 2020 goal of 23.9% — decreasing to 22.8%, a relative risk reduction of 12.3% and an absolute risk difference of 3.2% The absolute and relative risks associated with a trial of labor in women with a history of cesarean delivery, as com- pared with elective repeated cesarean delivery without labor, are uncertain
Higher risks associated with vaginal birth after cesarean, although absolute risk small rates of cesarean section continue to rise and the most common single indication for a cesarean delivery.

We applied the TGCS to nulliparous women aged at or above 35 years, to nulliparous women pregnant after ART, and to nulliparous women who delivered a baby. Between 1970 and 2006 the cesarean section rate in Canada more than quadrupled from 6% to 26%. Similar increases have occurred in every province, including Nova Scotia where the cesarean section rate in 2006 was 27%. The cesarean section rate has risen across all regions of Nova Scotia and among all age, parity and medical risk groups Cephalopelvic disproportion is an absolute indication for Caesarean section. Other absolute indications includes central placenta praevia, pelvic mass causing obstruction (cervical or broad ligament fibroid), advanced cervical carcinoma and vaginal obstruction (as in atresia, stenosis)

According to evidence, guidelines and quality markers, regional anesthesia is preferred over general anesthesia in obstetric surgery. Patients with high anxiety tend to prefer general anesthesia for cesarean section. The anxiety can be reduced variably by non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic methods. Absolute or relative contraindication. In the United States, the overall rate of cesarean delivery has risen dramatically, from 5 percent in 1970 to five times that (26.1 percent) in 2002. During the last 25 years, as repeat cesarean birth became the leading reason for abdominal delivery, studies detailed the relative safety of VBAC
A disturbance in the early colonisation of the gut by microorganisms is associated with an aberrant innate immune system and a variety of clinical conditions later in life. Several factors are considered to influence this initial colonisation, including maternally administered antibiotics during pregnancy and delivery.
