A C aesarean section is the delivery of a baby through a surgical incision in the abdomen and uterus. In western countries, Caesarean section rates have increased rapidly over the last decade. In this article, we shall look at the classification of Caesarean sections, its indications, and an outline of the operative procedure. Emergency Caesarean sections can then be subclassified into three categories, based on their urgency.

NICE has issued rapid update guidelines in relation to many of these. This guidance is changing frequently. 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.
Metrics details. Over the past two decades, there has been a steady rise in the rate of Cesarean section delivery globally. As a result, short-term and long-term maternal and neonatal complications are rising. The objective of this study is to determine the rate and indications for Cesarean section at King Abdullah University Hospital KAUH in Jordan and to assess the resulting neonatal outcomes. A retrospective chart review was conducted for all women and neonates delivered by Cesarean section during the period January to July at KAUH tertiary academic center.
Objectives: The aim of this study was to describe the distribution of indications for vacuum extraction VE and emergency cesarean section EMCS from to Furthermore, we investigated the association of induction of labor and epidural analgesia EA on the risk of operative delivery. Results: Among the VE deliveries the indication "signs of fetal distress" increased while "multiple indications" decreased.
