Abstract

Background: Bandl’s ring is a pathologic contraction ring of the uterus that is associated with obstructed labor.

Case: A 35-year-old with an uncomplicated past medical history was found to have a Bandl’s ring in her first pregnancy during a cesarean section for failure to progress. During her subsequent pregnancy, what appeared to be a Bandl’s ring was again found during repeat cesarean section after spontaneous labor.
