Providing a voice for the injured for more than 40 years
The labor and delivery process requires fast and accurate decision-making skills to ensure that the health of the mother and child are preserved. Uterine ruptures are serious, and unfortunately, are common complications that often lead to significant birth injuries such as oxygen deprivation, brain damage and death. At The Eisen Law Firm, our Cleveland medical negligence attorneys take time to analyze the specific circumstances of your case and develop a strong case designed to help you move on with your life in the best possible position.
Understanding the causes and dangers of uterine ruptures
During a Cesarean procedure, a doctor cuts open the mother’s uterus to deliver the child. Serious complications can occur if the uterine scar opens during subsequent pregnancies and births. Women with a history of multiple C-Sections are at a higher risk for uterine ruptures during later vaginal births (also called “VBACS” or Vaginal Birth After Cesarean). Uterine ruptures affect five of 1,000 women with a history of one prior Cesarean and 15 of 1,000 women with a history of two Cesareans. Uterine ruptures may also occur in women with no prior history of uterine surgery.
Consequences associated with uterine ruptures include:
- Fetal distress, including elevated heart rate
- Catastrophic hemorrhage
- The need for an emergency C-Section
- Additional uterine surgeries, including hysterectomy
Long-term side effects and even death of the child or mother may result from a uterine rupture that is ignored or improperly handled. Physicians and other healthcare providers are responsible for monitoring conditions and must make accurate decisions to prevent unnecessary injuries.
What are the signs of a possible uterine rupture?
During the labor process, there are many emotional and physical changes occurring in a short period of time. Both the mother and child must be monitored closely so that potential complications can be avoided. Uterine ruptures may involve increased vaginal bleeding and signs of fetal distress. If a uterine rupture is suspected, an emergency C-Section must be performed within minutes to prevent oxygen deprivation and death. Communication between the patient and healthcare providers is essential for providing the highest level of care. Our Cleveland medical negligence attorneys have helped numerous victims of uterine ruptures recover compensation for injuries suffered due to the negligent actions of doctors, nurses and hospitals.
