Percentage of previous C-section undergoing repeat section is close to 90%-92%, the morbidity associated with repeat surgery is bringing an altogether new set of challenges for the upcoming future obstetricians. The object of this study is to highlight the high incidence of repeat section required and also growing new indications of C-section due to the advanced availability of investigative tools. A retrospective study of 500 patients who underwent C-section and their indications.

Out of a total of 500 C-sections carried, patients with the previous sections were found to undergo a repeat C-section in 95% of the cases. Another common indication being oligohydramnios followed by cephalopelvic disproportion and failed induction. After assessing the results it is hereby concluded that the commonest indication of C-section in the present time is having a previous C-section, which alarms us to take a careful judicious decision in performing primi C-sections in order to prevent patients into entering a vicious cycle of repeat surgeries.
