Abstract: Over a 3-year period a retrospective audit was performed of all uncomplicated singleton breech presentations at term to assess the role of X-ray pelvimetry.

Obstetric outcome was measured in terms of mode of delivery. Short-term neonatal outcome was assessed by Apgar score at 5 minutes, evidence of birth trauma and admission to the neonatal special care unit for more than 24 hours.
