ABSTRACT
In 3-4% of the pregnancies that reach term, the baby is in breech presentation. The external cephalic version (ECV) is a procedure used for turning a baby from a breech or transverse position to a cephalic position. This procedure is a simple, effective and safe method; hence it frequently avoids the need for performing caesarean sections. For this reason, several prestigious international societies highly recommend the use of this technique. We present a case report where a 37-week firsttime mother underwent a successful ECV procedure, however a placental abruption occurred, consequently an urgent caesarean section was carried out. The follow up of both, the mother and the newborn, were normal and they were discharged four days after the surgery. The ECV is a simple and easy technique, however, it does not imply that clinicians should not act with extreme caution while performing this technique in order to avoid secondary complications.
