Potential long-term damage[edit]

"Is it possible that the long term effects of this cephal haematoma could be damage to hair follicles and, therefore, baldness over the area? Excessive vacuum activity may well??? damage hair follicles."

I removed the above two lines from the article because it is speculative and unencyclopaedic in its current form, but the contributor raises a valid question. Is there any evidence for such damage from ventouse suction? Karenjc (talk) 16:41, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Uneducated opinion: That claim sounds ridiculous, but I'd love to see vacuum cleaners advertised for hair removal. (talk) 15:06, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

"in the mid-1980's on the east coast"[edit]

East coast of where? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:51, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

Cesarean Section Rate[edit]


Of note his cesarean section rate is now 100% in the year 2009.

I assume this means he's not doing the procedure anymore? Could mean a few other things, I think... has he finally mastered cesareans so well that mothers and babies aren't dying from the procedure anymore?

And, I'm not sure, but I think there should also be a comma after "Of note". (talk) 15:02, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
