This procedure is generally safe for both the mother and the fetus however there is only 18% of ECV uptake worldwide.
OBJECTIVES: This study aims to describe the delivery outcomes of women with uncomplicated term singleton pregnancies with malpresentation after undergoing External Cephalic Version.

RESULTS:  Eighty-nine (89%, 16/19) of the subjects delivered by Normal Spontaneous Vaginal Delivery (NSVD) after ECV while 11% (2/18) delivered by Cesarian Section (CS). Majority of subjects who underwent ECV have remarkable feto-maternal outcomes.
