Absolute indication for LSCS is:



A Type IV placenta previa
B Breech presentation

C Previous LSCS
D Fetal distress

Ans. A

Type IV placenta previa

a. Cesarean section (LSCS) is the safest mode of delivery for patients with complete placenta previa or significant hemodynamic compromise.

b. If time permits, regional anesthesia is the better alternative because general anesthesia is associated with increased blood loss and the need for blood transfusion. Most often, the low transverse uterine incision is used; however, a vertical uterine incision may be used when concern about an anterior placenta and fear of fetal bleeding exists.
