External cephalic version has been used periodically for centuries to manage breech presentations. As cesarean section rates have escalated in the last two decades, ways to curb this rise have been evaluated. By reducing the number of infants that arrive in labor in a representation, it is possible to impact the overall cesarean section rate. External cephalic version is a safe, effective method when used in appropriate cases of breech presentation. A forward or backward roll can be accomplished in women at term with singleton gestations, adequate amniotic fluid, and reactive nonstress tests. Parity, fetal and placental position, and descent of the presenting part may all influence the success rate of the version.
