ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In a retrospective descriptive study, all breech deliveries in Tygerberg Hospital from 1 October 1982 until 30 September 1983 are presented. The aim of the study was to determine the status of the method of breech deliveries in this hospital. There were 358 breech deliveries, all fetuses weighing 500 g or more. Of these, 80% were live born. Caesarean section accounted for 51,5% of the live births. These results correlate well with those reported in other series.
