  Summary: Abdominal delivery by C-section is an obstetrical operation by means of which the foetus is extracted through the abdominal and uterus wall of the mother and it is performed in advanced pregnancy when the survival of the foetus is possible. If performed on the basis of well-founded indications in modern conditions of preoperative preparations, applied surgical technique, anaesthesia, reanimation, transfusion, antibiotic prophylactics, chemotherapy and postoperative supervision, the life of the mother or the foetus or of both is often saved by C-section. There have been 2110 deliveries at the Obstetrics Ward in Zaječar over the period of three years, 554 of which were performed by C-section (26.25%). The highest percentage was among women who were 26-30 years of age (34.11%). As for the parity, the largest number of them were the women with their first child - 319 (57.6%), which is comparable with world statistics, while there were 190 (34.3%) women with their second child. Thanks to the progress in perinatal medicine and surgery, as regards the application of scientific innovations and technical achievements, improved anaesthesia, uterotonics, blood transfusion, antibiotics and surgical technique that has been brought to perfection, as well as to the application of a low transversal cut on the uterus, C-section is nowadays a safe surgery by means of which a huge progress in obstetrics practice has been made.
