Uterine rupture is the most serious and life threatening complication and occurs in 0.7-0.9% of vaginal birth after lower segment caesarean section. Cases of bladder rupture along with uterine rupture have been rarely reported and avulsion of ureter, required ureteric implantation is even rarer. This case report describe a very rare case of vesicouterine rupture with avulsion of ureter following vacuum assisted delivery in a grandmulti with previous lower segment cesarean section (LSCS). Haematuria is the most common presentation of bladder rupture. Antenatal counseling regarding this entity is recommended if woman opted for vaginal birth after cesarean section.
