Performance of a cesarean section
In contrast to this approach, a vertical incision is usually used for uterotomy in preterm cesarean sections. This incision allows for a large enough opening to deliver the baby, which is especially important in case of oligohydramnios, very small fetus, or malpresentation of the fetus.
For emergency cesarean sections, after the decision to perform emergent cesarean section has been made, the fetus should be delivered within 20 minutes.
