Abstract

In pregnant women with a history of cesarean section, wall thickness of the lower uterine segment may help determine the risk and safety of vaginal delivery. Determination of wall thickness may help identify the potential risk of uterine rupture in pregnant women who do not wish to have another cesarean section or who are not eligible for surgery due to other systemic disorders.
