Induction of labour is one of the most common procedures performed in obstetrics. As such, many clinical trials have been undertaken to try to optimise induction strategies and interventions. Unfortun...
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...
Pharmacological labour induction is obtained through prostaglandins application and/or oxytocin infusion; however the use seems related to foetal and maternal side effects. Traditional Chinese Medicin...
Patients, their parents and healthcare professionals (HCPs) have a different perception regarding the symptoms of functional constipation (FC). Consequently, a lack of agreement exists on definitions ...
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...
Objective: To compare the efficacy and safety of the misoprostol vaginal insert (MVI) for labour induction using standard (MVI-24) and adjusted (MVI-10) criteria. Design: Non-intervention...
Labour induction is a frequent obstetric intervention (~20%). Prostaglandins (PGs) are effective agents, but gastrointestinal (GI) intolerance has limited use to non-oral routes. The tradi...
Objective: To compare the efficacy and safety of the misoprostol vaginal insert (MVI) with an off-label use of oral misoprostol (OM). Design: Pair-matched case-control study. Setti...
The aim of induction of labour is to initiate labour when maternal and fetal conditions necessitate delivery before the onset of spontaneous contractions. Prostaglandins are widely used fo...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness and safety of vaginally administered misoprostol (Misodel) versus per orally administered misoprostol (Cytotec) in induction o...
A transcription factor that dimerizes with CORE BINDING FACTOR BETA SUBUNIT to form core binding factor. It contains a highly conserved DNA-binding domain known as the runt domain and is involved in genetic regulation of skeletal development and CELL DIFFERENTIATION.
Works about a study where participants are assigned to a treatment, procedure, or intervention by methods that are not random. Non-randomized clinical trials are sometimes referred to as quasi-experimental clinical trials or non-equivalent control group designs.
System established by the World Health Organization and the International Committee on Thrombosis and Hemostasis for monitoring and reporting blood coagulation tests. Under this system, results are standardized using the International Sensitivity Index for the particular test reagent/instrument combination used.
