Population based, retrospective cohort analysis of all women who gave birth via CS with their first child and then delivered a second child in Washington state from 1987 to 1996. (total of 20,095 patients) Risk of uterine rupture was evaluated for repeat CS, spontaneous labor, induced labor. Results: Uterine rupture occurred in 1.6/1000 with repeat CS (no labor) Uterine rupture occurred 5.2/1000 with spontaneous onset labor.20Uterine rupture occurred 7.7/1000 in those whose labor was induced without prostaglandins. Uterine rupture occurred 24.5/1000 in those with prostaglandin induction. Relative risk of uterine rupture: 3.3 with spontaneous labor, 4.9 relative risk with induced labor (not prostaglandin) and 15.6 relative risk of rupture with prostaglandins.
