Abstract

Preterm deliveries have multiple aetiologies and management is dependent on cause. Recent studies have shown that caesarean sections performed late in labour have been associated with recurrent, early premature births and late miscarriages (Figure 1). Both the prediction and management of these under‐recognised high‐risk cases needs to be elucidated.
