Caesarean sections at Queen Alia Military Hospital, Jordan: a six-year review
AbstractIn 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%.
