As a woman with a bicornuate uterus I wouldnt agree.

This is actually more common than they used to believe. It's what is called a "window" or a "dehescience" and it's one reason why some studies' rupture rates are so high vs others, because these "windows" are grouped in with full, catastrophic ruptures.
They're finding that these windows of separation occur before labor and are usually benign and not an indication of an impending catastrophic rupture.

Just when I thought I was all alone in corrected bicornuate land planning to VBAC, you started talking about your friend . I'm really pleasantly surprised to hear that your friend is planning to VBAC next time around. My surgeon gave me the "you must have a c/s" talk. Then I started doing my own digging and found what little bit of research has been done on us surgically corrected wacky wombs. There really have been women with corrected bicornuate that have had successful vaginal births, and, contrary to popular belief, none of the ruptured!
Any chance you could put me in touch with your friend? Feel free to pm me.
|I am not sure what you are reading and from where, but I have read several articles in medical journals on bicornuate, surgically corrected ones, that did rupture during childbirth. I will have to dig through my folders but I believe I found these on medline. One rupture was even catastrophic. What I dont remember is if the labors were augmented.|
