A 40-year-old woman underwent operative hysteroscopy for suspected submucosal myoma, during which the uterine fundus was perforated. At laparotomy the perforation site was sutured. In a subsequent pregnancy she had a sudden onset of abdominal pain. Laparotomy revealed a uterine rupture with a partially protruding placenta. A healthy newborn was delivered by a low-segment cesarean section. (AM J OBSTET GYNECOL 1994;170:786-7.)
