This study was a retrospective review of pregnant women with uterine inversion at 4 Japanese secondary and tertiary perinatal centers from January 2007 to December 2013. For the 6 cases found, the authors reviewed the patients’ medical records for maternal characteristics and delivery information. All 6 women were experiencing their first pregnancy, had an average age of 28, and had a shock index of at least 1.6 on admission (range 1.6-2.7). Two of the cases involved manual removal of the placenta, and the uterine inversion was noticed immediately.
