A uterine rupture during pregnancy or labor can be a very serious condition and can affect a child throughout his or her lifetime. Severe uterine rupture signs are indicated by extreme, localized pain and abnormalities shown in the heart rate of the fetus. There can be vaginal bleeding, with the vaginal examination showing the baby not as low in the birth canal as he or she had been previously.
If you or someone you know suffers severe pain in the abdomen, make sure to report it to the physician immediately. Women who are at risk for uterine rupture should have regular medical check-ups and may possibly schedule for a cesarean only.
When a woman suffers a uterine rupture as a result of the negligence of a doctor, hospital, or nursing staff, it may give rise to medical malpractice lawsuit. It is necessary to contact an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to review the records so that a determination can be made as to whether the mother and child are entitled to compensation for their injuries.
