NOTE: Individual subscribers will be required to submit payment before viewing. Users accessing via an institutional subscription can proceed without payment.

Learning Objectives

After completing this continuing education activity you will be able to:

  1. Describe factors that influence the thinness of the lower uterine segment (LUS); and the incidence of and risk factors for uterine rupture.
  2. Summarize evidence regarding the evaluation of LUS thinness to predict risk of uterine rupture in women undergoing a trial of labor after cesarean delivery
  3. Compare the use of ultrasound, MRI, and physical measurement at cesarean delivery for measurement of LUS.

Learning Outcomes

By the conclusion of this activity, a majority of the participants will demonstrate knowledge of current evidence examining whether a thin LUS ultrasound diagnosis during pregnancy with prior cesarean delivery(s) can reliably predict uterine rupture risk by achieving a passing score on the posttest.
