Comparison of Foley Balloon With or Without Traction for the Cervical Ripening
We will compare the use of foley bulb catheters placed in the cervix for ripening of the cervix for labor induction, One arm will have the foley balloon placed alone in the cervix. And one arm will have the foley balloon placed in the cervix and then attached to a weight (1000 cc Iv Bag of fluid). Our hypothesis is that the weighted balloon will be more effective than the non-weighted balloon in the ripening of the cervix for induction of labor.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
foley balloon only, foley balloon with weight attached

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Nonoperative repair of occluded vessels, ducts, or valves by insertion of a balloon catheter. It is used, among other things, to treat varices, torn retinas, renal and biliary calculi, gastric, bronchial and rectal stenoses, and heart valves, and includes catheterization with Fogarty and Foley CATHETERS.

Intra-aortic Balloon Pumping
Counterpulsation in which a pumping unit synchronized with the patient's electrocardiogram rapidly fills a balloon in the aorta with helium or carbon dioxide in early diastole and evacuates the balloon at the onset of systole. As the balloon inflates, it raises aortic diastolic pressure, and as it deflates, it lowers aortic systolic pressure. The result is a decrease in left ventricular work and increased myocardial and peripheral perfusion.
Angioplasty, Balloon, Laser-assisted
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
Use of a balloon catheter to block the flow of blood through an artery or vein.
The rate of labor induction is rising throughout the United States for a variety of reasons. Medical conditions that lead to increased risk of prolonging the pregnancy to both mother and f...
Hypothesis: The induction of labor in patients with unfavorable Bishop score is a challenging obstetrical process, and may be influenced or complicated by the cervical ripening method used...
The purpose of this study is to specifically investigate the efficacy of an alternative pharmacologic cervical ripening agent, misoprostol, versus the standard oxytocin, as an adjunct to F...
The purpose of this study is to compare between single balloon catheter and double balloon catheter for ripening the cervix among pregnant with unfavorable cervix.
The purpose of the study is to determine if the commercially available device called the DOVER™ Silver Foley catheter prevents infections of the urinary tract.
PURPOSE: During abdominal myomectomy for removal of multiple fibroids, the uterine cavity may be breached. Repair of the breach is associated with a risk of development of intrauterine adhesions. We c...
ABSTRACT: INTRODUCTION: Conservative treatment of a heterotopic cervical pregnancy was performed with a modification of the fixation of a Foley catheter at the level of the external cervical os, follo...
OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of a modified Foley's catheter endometrial ablation in the treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding in low resource settings. METHODS: Four hundred and thirty premenopa...
BACKGROUND: Control of bowel effluents is imperative in cases of postoperative bowel perforation, and this is best achieved by stoma formation. When stoma formation is impossible, the surgeon is often...
PURPOSE: This study was designed to evaluate retrospectively the safety and efficacy of the percutaneous management of duodenal stump leakage with a Foley catheter after subtotal gastrectomy. METHODS:...
