La rotation manuelle des variétés postérieures ou transverses : état des lieux en Basse-Normandie

Abstract : It has been shown that manual rotation reduces the rate of caesarians and instrumental extractions. The aim of our study was also to describe the practice of manual rotation by professionals of Perinatal Basse-Normandie network. For that purpose, a prospective, descriptive and multicenter study was conducted among obstetricians and midwives during two months. 60.4% of 217 respondents practice manual rotation of occiput posterior or transverse varieties and only age and experience positively influence the fact of practicing it. There are large disparities in the practice of manual rotation: indications, dilation, height of the presentation during the attempts, and techniques used. It is therefore a person-dependent practice. Perhaps it is due to low rate of trained professionals : 17.5% only. It would though be interesting to consider a professional training in this practice and to establish a standardized support within our network.
