CS requires careful assessment of its risks and benefits based on the clinical scenario and the agents to be used. Patients should be fully informed of the risks of the procedure and the alternatives available. The patient's expectations should be carefully explored and should be corrected when they are not reasonable.

Written informed consent documents may be required at certain hospitals, but are not a substitute for the physician's note documenting patient discussion.
