Study group discussion: Trial of scar

Can anyone tell me about the "Trial of scar" after C section procedures?
I have heard of trial of labour, not sure if its the same thing!

My searches lead me to trial of labour as well ..I guess they are.

It's especially indicated in cases of borderline cephalopelvic disproportion.

The obstetrician let's the lady go in to labour in a controlled environment. If the labour becomes to stressful and is prolonged unduly, the doctor immediately performs a C section

It's more like given the patient an opportunity to experience normal vaginal delivery.

Same thing i suppose can be applied to scar from previous C section.

You see the chances of rupture of the lower segment scar is highest during labour, so the patient is monitored especially for signs of impending scar rupture

Most common is pain and tenderness over the scar area.

A off topic thing due to c/s delivery a tv series named "the knick", a medicine based serie in the beginning of the 20th century in usa, i recommend it, the changes in surgery, hospitalization, treatments are baby steps, surgeons invent the tools they use, amazing!
