UTERINE RUPTURE


Uterine rupture is caused by a tear in the wall of the uterus at the site of a previous C- section . This is usually the case in up to ninety percent of tears. Complete rupture will cause:
- a tear through the entire uterine wall, resulting in heavy bleeding in the abdominal cavity and vaginally
- signs and symptoms of shock(SESSIONS 9 - Hypovolemic Shock)
-abdominal pain and sometimes referred chest pain.
Hypovolemic shock may result if there is significant blood loss. To learn more about this topic, simply click on the link:
