Three hundred and sixty‐six patients with a history of previous Caesarean section or hysterotomy have been studied with reference to subsequent labour and mode of delivery in 454 pregnancies. Elective Caesarean section was performed in 132 (29%); vaginal delivery, which was attempted in 322 cases, was successful in 78%. The vaginal delivery rate for the whole series was 55%. The type of uterine scar and state of scar at subsequent delivery are recorded. The incidence of scar dehiscence was found to be 1.1%. There was no maternal mortality in the series but an increase was noted in maternal morbidity. Copyright © 1970, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
