  1. Uterine rupture

    Uterine rupture is a potentially catastrophic event during childbirth by which the integrity of the myometrial wall is breached. In an incomplete rupture the peritoneum is still intact. With a complete rupture the contents of the uterus may spill into the peritoneal cavity or the broad ligament. A uterine rupture is a life-threatening event for mother and baby. A uterine rupture typically occurs during active labor, but may already develop during late pregnancy. Uterine dehiscence is a similar condition, but involves fewer layers, less bleeding, and less risk.

U.S. National Library of Medicine

  1. Uterine Rupture

    A complete separation or tear in the wall of the UTERUS with or without expulsion of the FETUS. It may be due to injuries, multiple pregnancies, large fetus, previous scarring, or obstruction.
