Description: Operative vaginal delivery has a definite time and place in obstetric practice and is associated with reduced maternal complications compared to cesarean section. While vacuum extraction now exceeds the use of forceps, the indications and efficacy for them are essentially the same.

1) State the indications for operative vaginal delivery.
2) Describe the advantages and disadvantages for both vacuum extraction and forceps.
3) Define and explain the importance of an exit plan.
