    Shoulder dystocia remains a frequent cause of obstetric malpractice claims. This lecture covers the risk factors for shoulder dystocia: Is it possible to predict? The five literature-supported risk factors for shoulder dystocia are each discussed. When is it never safe to perform an operative vaginal delivery?
