In brief: See long answer
Uterine rupture is a rare event occurring typically with a pregnant uterus often during labor.
The uterus literally tears or ruptures. This is both a maternal & fetal emergency. Uterine rupture is more common to occur with a uterus that has been previously scarred, for example a prior c-section or prior fibroid removal. Uterine rupture is the most worrisome complication for women with prior c-s.
