Transverse Dorsal Presentation.

Transverse Dorsal Presentation.
With a transverse dorsal presentation the back of the calf is presented towards the pelvic inlet. The head and the forelimbs are in one horn, the hindlimbs in the opposite horn. It is extremely difficult for the obstetrician to get a hold of any portion of the calf. Furthermore, dilation of the birth canal is poor due to the absence of extremities in the areas of the cervix and the vagina. This presentation is fortunately rare and calls for cesarean section. [size of the square tile is 15 cm].
