Abstract

Internal podalic version of the second twin in transverse lie has usually been performed after first rupturing the membranes of the second amniotic sac. In a prospective study on internal podalic version with unruptured amniotic membranes, 11 second-born twins in transverse lie were successfully delivered, with good neonatal outcome and without birth injuries. From our experience, it appears that this modified technique, when used within the presented guidelines, offers a reasonable alternative for the safe delivery of the second twin.
