Dong Yu-ying, et al. Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Shanghai First People's Hospital, Shanghai 200085
From April 1985 through March 1987, 67 patients with neglected transverse lie were admitted and treated. Among them internal version and breech traction under general anesthesia were performed in 30, which were favored due to simple management and smooth convalescence. Sixteen patients had uterine rupture, suture repair was carried out in 10 (62.5%) and hysterectomy in 6 (37.5%). Twenty-nine of 67 patients had abdominal operation with rifocine 400 mg used routinely in operative field, and intravenous or intramuscular injection of broad spectrum antibiotics simultaneously. No serious infection of genital tract was observed.
