Book Chapter
Chapter 11 of the book "Surgical Care at District Hospitals" is presented. It examines several techniques in the management of prolonged labor that can lead to maternal problems such as infection, uterine rupture and maternal death. Poor uterine contractions, malprensentation and disproportion of fetal size to pelvic size were among the fundamental causes of slow progress labor. Procedures of tubal ligation were also discussed.
