Abstract:Summary To evaluate the safety of vaginal delivery for breech first twin we reviewed retrospectively and compared the perinatal outcome of breech first twin: 42 delivered vaginally and 87 delivered abdominally. Vaginal delivery was allowed under the same criteria for singleton breech presentation. Both groups had similar maternal and neonatal characteristics. Intergroup differences in perinatal outcome, as measured by Apgar score, and mortality cases, were not significant. Our results showed that vaginal delivery is a safe mode of delivery and this route is not associated with higher mortality and morbidity.
