FERREIRA, Ana  e  AYRES-DE-CAMPOS, Diogo. Vaginal breech delivery: is it still an option?. Acta Obstet Ginecol Port [online]. 2016, vol.10, n.2, pp.142-147. ISSN 1646-5830.

Breech presentation occurs in approximately 3 to 4% of all women with term pregnancies, and since the publication of the Term Breech Trial, in 2000, in many centers these fetuses are preferably delivered by planned cesarean section. However, some European centers continue to offer planned vaginal delivery for women with singleton term pregnancies in breech presentation under strict pre-labor selection criteria and intrapartum management guidelines. This article reviews the evidence on the ideal route of birth for term breech fetuses, in order to evaluate the current safety of planned vaginal delivery in industrialized countries.

Palavras-chave : Breech Presentation; Labor Presentation; Obstetric Labor Complications; Vaginal Breech Delivery.
