A brief summary about predictive factors for breech presentation

Advanced maternal age, early gestational age, low neonatal weight, female gender, nulliparity, previous cesarean section, tobacco smoke, decreased volume of amniotic fluid, fundal placenta position, parents themselves delivered in breech presentation, congenital malformation, and low PAPP-A values at first trimester screening resulted to be risk factors for fetal breech presentation at delivery.
