Uterine Rupture

Ross Feller Casey has built a nationally recognized record of victories in Birth Injury cases.

Typically occurring during early labor, a Uterine Rupture is a potentially life-threatening event for mother and baby in which the integrity of the myometrial wall is breached.

A uterine rupture occurs when a weakened spot on the uterine wall - very often the site of a previous uterine surgery such as a C-section or fibroid removal - tears due to the strain put on it during labor and delivery.

In an incomplete rupture, the peritoneum remains intact but in a complete rupture the content of the uterus may spill into the peritoneal cavity.

Studies suggest that in women with two or more prior cesareans, the rate of rupture rises as high as 3.9 percent.
