C-sections overprescribed in Italy, study finds

Rome, January 18 - Italian women giving birth in
public hospitals are subjected to caesarean sections in 29% of
cases, of which 43% appear retroactively not to have been
medically justified, according a report released on Friday.
The data was compiled based on hospital dismissal medical
reports of patients in 2010, and a common anomaly was the
erroneous indication that the foetus was badly positioned, which
led the surgery to be executed.
Births in Italy totalled 482,195 in 2010.
