OBJECTIVES: Reassessment of predisposing factors to transverse lie presentation. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of delivery data on 92 women with transverse lie presentation, using ultrasonography, and 92 randomly chosen control vertex deliveries. RESULTS: The association between transverse lie and multiparity, prematurity, placenta previa, polyhydramnios and uterine anomalies is reaffirmed. Predisposing factors were found in 66% of primiparas but in only 33% of multiparas. CONCLUSIONS: Known predisposing factors to transverse lie presentation withstood a closer and more accurate assessment of their incidence.
