I can't find any answers even at The National Library of Medicine.  If a 
pt has undergone a transsphenoidal for acrogmegaly, has had a previous 
C-section and now is to undergo a pitocin induction VBAC, what are possible 
complications?  Assuming the natural oxytocin feedback loop is disrupted 
by the cutting of the pituitary stalk & the risks already associated with 
VBAC, could uterine rupture be more likely?
If more pt history is needed please respond here or via e-mail. Any input 
would be greatly appreciated.
