Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The management of labor and delivery in low-risk subjects is an important aspect of modern obstetrics. Ancillary procedures performed during a vaginal delivery have scientific evidence to support their use. The diagnosis of dystocia is an evolving concept with previously accepted guidelines changing based on newer data utilizing more recent cohorts. Decreasing the number of cesarean deliveries performed for the diagnosis of dystocia has far-reaching benefits.
