Description

Excerpt from American Journal of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women and Children, Vol. 63: January-June, 1911 When the hemorrhage is severe and the cervix admits two or more fingers, the best results, as far as the mother is concerned, are obtained by the performance of Braxton Hicks' or internal podalic version, using the child's thigh and buttocks as a tampon. This method gives a high fetal mortality of about 60 per cent., but the maternal is reduced to about 3 to 6 per cent. In this relation it is important to emphasize the necessity of the slow extraction of the child after the foot has been brought down; for if rapid delivery be attempted with an incompletely dilated cervix, rupture of the lower uterine segment with the attendant mortality will deprive the method of all its advantages.
