AbstractLabour is very important in breech presentation and it is associated to significant morbidity and mortality enhancement in recent years. The authors made a retrospective study of breech presentation and labour with this kind of fetal presentation, in Santa Maria Hospital in 1993 and analysed the following data: maternal age, parity, gestational age, the mode of delivery, the fetal weight, the maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. The authors also reviewed the Literature on the incidence, the most frequent complications and the management in labour to compare with the results of the study. The authors found that the incidence of breech presentation in this hospital is slightly higher (4.7%) than the universal data. The remaining results had no significant difference.
