The medical and social significance of the problem of abdominal delivery is determined by its prevalence, its impact on the most important health indicators, parameters of maternal and perinatal mortality. The rate of Caesarean section (CS) is uncontrolled and steadily growing. This generates a new problem that is the birth of previously operated women, which in most cases are solved in one-sided way in the Ukrainian realities, in favor of an elective repeated CS. The present data is mainly provided by foreign authors on the most controversial aspects of the problem: the risk of primary CS, ways of controlling the overall frequency of CS, the frequency and possibilities of predicting the success of vaginal births.

Key words: cesarean delivery, frequency, causes, cesarean section, vaginal births.
