Ruptured Uterus. This medical exhibit depicts an attempted vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC) with subsequent uterine rupture. The first image pictures the pre-operative maternal pelvis with full term fetus (baby) showing the scarring of the uterus from a previous cesarean section (c-section). The second image illustrates the infant's head protruding through the torn uterus as well as the massive hemorrhage from the placental abruption.
