Cesarean Section

Twin birth – planned vaginal delivery still standard of care

TWINS Twin pregnancy accounts for 2-3% births and is associated with a higher risk for adverse perinatal outcome. Thus, this randomized controlled trial sought to determine whether planned cesarean section resulted in improved outcomes compared to planned vaginal delivery in twin pregnancy. The trial revealed no difference in outcomes for either mothers or infants in the planned cesarean section group. Though long-term follow-up studies are necessary, these data do not suggest that planned cesarean section is superior to vaginal delivery in twin pregnancy.
