AIM: To study the changing trend in the delivery of transverse lie, and its effect on neonatal outcome, in a developing country. SUBJECTS AND METHOD: This is a retrospective study involving records of 12 years of all patients with transverse lie. Neonatal outcome of births by internal podalic version (IPV) and lower segment caesarean section (LSCS) were compared. RESULTS: In the first six years, 37.3% of transverse lie underwent IPV and 62.7%, LSCS. In the next six years, 15.8% underwent IPV and 84.2%, LSCS. 87.7% and 12.3% of live babies were delivered by LSCS and IPV respectively. 52% of the live born IPV were discharged compared to 95% of LSCS babies. Neonatal outcome was best when IPV was performed on second twin. CONCLUSION: IPV has a role in the delivery of second twin, pre-viable and dead babies.
