Correct -- the results will be biased if you use a naive Kaplan-Meier (censoring out the competing events as you say). Cox or Fine-Gray models are preferable in this case, but not perfect. Happy reading,Cam

> >> In fact, since posting, I have read around&   done some web searches&   realised that survival analysis with competing risks is not so different from ordinary survival analysis, which answers my immediate problem .  The same regression methods and software can apparently be used.  It is only necessary to treat the subjects with competing events (women undergoing induction or C/S) as censored at the end of the study period.
