      Akasheh, H.F.; Amarin, V. (‎2000)‎
      In the 6-year period from 1 August 1991 to 31 July 1997, at Queen Alia Military Hospital, Amman, Jordan, 1339 caesarean sections were performed out of a total 17 392 deliveries, representing an overall incidence of 7.7%. Indications for the caesarean sections were variable. Whether the operation was a primary or repeat procedure was often a major consideration. Efforts to prevent unnecessary caesarean sections should focus on reducing the frequency of first-time procedures
