Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To estimate success rates and risks with a trial of labor after one previous cesarean delivery for multifetal gestation compared with one previous cesarean delivery for a singleton pregnancy. METHODS: Patients from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Maternal Fetal Medicine Units Network Cesarean Registry with one previous cesarean delivery and a current term singleton pregnancy were identified. Cases had one previous cesarean delivery for a multifetal pregnancy. Controls had one previous cesarean delivery for a singleton pregnancy. RESULTS: Of cases, 556 of 944 (58.9%) attempted a trial of labor. Of controls, 13,923 of 29,329 (47.5%) attempted a trial of labor. The trial of labor success rate was 85.6% among cases and 73.1% among controls (odds ratio 2.19, 95% confidence interval 1.72-2.78). Compared with trial of labor controls, cases had no statistically increased risk of transfusion, endometritis, intensive care unit admissions, uterine rupture, or perinatal complications. Cases in this analysis with a successful trial of labor were more likely to have previously had a successful vaginal birth after cesarean (37.1% compared with 14.1%, P<.001). CONCLUSION: Women with one previous cesarean delivery for a multifetal gestation have high trial of labor success rates and low complication rates.
