An important cause of maternal health concern, cesarean section (CS) is known to have some correlation with maternal near-miss (MNM). The objective of this study was to investigate the frequency, causes, risk factors, and perinatal outcomes of MNM. Between March 2012 and May 2014, this incident case-control study was conducted at 3 university hospitals in Tehran with high CS rates.
