Attempted Vaginal Birth After Cesarean Section (VBAC) with Subsequent Uterine Rupture - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
Ruptured Uterus. This medical exhibit depicts an attempted vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) with subsequent uterine rupture. The first image pictures the pre-operative maternal pelvis with full term fetus (baby) showing the scarring of the uterus from a previous cesarean section (c-section). The second image illustrates the infant's head protruding through the torn uterus as well as the massive hemorrhage from the placental abruption.
Risk of Uterine Rupture During Labor Higher for Women with a Prior Cesarean Delivery

Women with a prior cesarean section, who undergo labor for their second child, are at increased risk of a rupture of the uterus, compared with women who elect another cesarean section birth. This finding by a University of Washington team of researchers appears in the July 5 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine.

The study involved analyzing the records of 20,095 women who had their first child delivered by cesarean section and who delivered a second child either by cesarean or following labor. These records were from 1987 through 1996 and came from civilian hospitals in Washington State. The research was funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research, National Institutes of Health, and by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

The rate of uterine rupture for repeat cesarean deliveries without labor for women having a previous C-section was 1.6 per 1,000 women. Uterine rupture was highest where prostaglandin, a naturally-occurring substance in the body administered to induce labor, was used for the second birth — 24.5 per 1,000 women. For women whose labor was induced without prostaglandin, the rate was 7.7 per 1,000 women. And for those with spontaneous onset of labor, the rate was 5.2 per 1,000 women. As these data indicate, uterine rupture is not that common, but it may have serious consequences that include hysterectomy, urologic injury, or need for a blood transfusion for the mother, and neurologic impairment in the infant.

"Undergoing cesarean delivery comes with its own risks," said Dr. Mona Lydon-Rochelle, principal investigator of the study. "Now we have indications that second births following labor by women with an earlier C-section also include higher risks of uterine rupture. What this research shows is that having that first C-section adds to the complexity of assessing the risk/benefit ratio of procedures to use for the births to follow. Another factor brought to light by the study," she added, "is the use of prostaglandins to induce labor, which produces the greatest risk of uterine rupture when there have been prior C-sections."

Dr. Patricia A. Grady, Director of the NINR, added that "further research is needed to increase knowledge about how to reduce the risk of various birth procedures. Since many women with prior C-sections have been electing to try labor for their second pregnancy, it is important that before this decision is reached, they assess the relative risks and discuss them with their healthcare providers."

"These data also raise the question of the risk of induction of labor for women with a prior C-section," stated Dr. Nancy Woods, Dean of the University of Washington's School of Nursing and former head of their Center for Women's Health Research, where the study originated.

The research team included Dr. Mona Lydon-Rochelle, principal investigator and senior research fellow in the Department of Family and Child Nursing in the School of Nursing, Dr. Victoria L. Holt, associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology in the School of Public Health and Community Medicine; Dr. Thomas R. Easterling, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology of the School of Medicine; and Dr. Diane P. Martin, Professor in the Department of Health Services in the School of Public Health and Community Medicine, all at the University of Washington.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"It is my experience that it's much more effective to show a jury what happened than simply to tell a jury what happened. In this day and age where people are used to getting information visually, through television and other visual media, I would be at a disadvantage using only words.

I teach a Litigation Process class at the University of Baltimore Law Schooland use [Medical Legal Art's] animation in my class. Students always saythat they never really understood what happened to [to my client] until theysaw the animation.

Animations are powerful communication tools that should be used wheneverpossible to persuade juries."

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."

"The illustrations have consistently been well documented, accurate and timely. Most important though is that the illustrations demonstrate to juries and claims people the persuasive power of visual communication. Our firm has achieved multiple eight figure settlements and verdicts over the past ten years... Medical Legal Art has been there with us on every case."
