  Vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC) has become an integral part of modern obstetrics with more than 100,000VBACs achieved each year nationwide. Despite this, it re-mains a controversial issue. Although it has been reported as safe and has contributed to a reduced cesarean delivery (CS) rate, BAC is associated with a risk of uterine rupture. Because the maternal and fetal consequences of uterine rupture can be serious and potentially life threatening, the proper selection of patients would be an important prerequisite.

Method and Material: This prospective study was conducted at department of obstetrics and gynecology in Tripoli University Hospital for 6 months. Results: A among 60 patient included in our study the mean age was 30.7, mean gestational age was 38 weeks, and parity ranged from 2-5, and the mean of Lower uterine segment thickness was 4.047, and 40% of the patient's had successful trial of labour and delivered vaginally, and the appearance of the lower uterine segment at time of caesarean section was normal 50%, the cut of value of lower uterine segment that predict uterine rupture 3mm. Conclusion: Lower uterine segment measurement by Ultra sound can predict successful dehiscence.
