Am Fam Physician. 2012 Feb 15;85(4):311.

The online version of the Cochrane Briefs, “Instruments for Assisted Vaginal Delivery,” (July 1, 2011, page 26) has been updated because the last sentence of the “Practice Pointers” section did not represent a conclusion from the Cochrane review of instrumental delivery. The following sentence has been removed online: “If a vacuum device is unsuccessful, delivery with forceps can be attempted.”
