Safety of the balloon catheter for cervical ripening in outpatient care: complications during the period from insertion to expulsion of a balloon catheter in the process of labour induction: a systematic review.
It has been suggested that cervical ripening with a balloon catheter for labour induction can be done in an outpatient setting in low-risk pregnancies. Introduction of such an approach needs to be acc...
The prediction of successful labour induction is difficult, indicating a need for a biomarker test. Little is known about the effect of Foley catheter (FC) induction on biochemical mediators in the ce...
Evaluate the association between cervical examination after ripening with Foley catheter and labor induction outcomes.
The optimal method for induction of labor for multiparous women with an unfavorable cervix is unknown.
To compare the efficacy and safety of hygroscopic dilators and balloon catheters for ripening of the cervix in induction of labor.
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...
When oligohydramnion - decreased amniotic fluid, is diagnosed at term pregnancies, the common practice is to induce labor. Whenever the cervix is not ripened, there are several methods to ...
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...

Study Purpose: The purpose of this study is to determine the optimal method for induction of labor in multiparous women who present with an unfavorable cervix. Hypothesis: Our hypothesis ...
A change in the CERVIX UTERI with respect to its readiness to relax. The cervix normally becomes softer, more flexible, more distensible, and shorter in the final weeks of PREGNANCY. These cervical changes can also be chemically induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
