Ninety-four singleton vaginal breech deliveries conducted under extradural analgesia were compared with 277 singleton vaginal breech deliveries conducted without extradural analgesia. Mean duration of the first stage of labour was similar in both groups. Mean duration of the second stage of labour was prolonged and mean 1-min Apgar scores were less in fetuses weighing more than 2500 g in the extradural group. Mean 5-min Apgar scores, perinatal morbidity and maternal complications were similar in both groups.
