To evaluate whether cervical dilation predicts the timing and likelihood of spontaneous labor at term.
To compare the efficacy of similar buccal and vaginal misoprostol doses for induction of labor.
To estimate the effect of oligohydramnios on fetal heart rate (FHR) patterns in patients undergoing induction of labor (IOL) at term.
A growing body of evidence supports improved or not worsened birth outcomes with non-medically indicated induction of labor at 39 weeks compared to expectant management. This evidence includes two rec...
Labor is induced in 20-30% of maternities with an increasing trend of use. Labor induction with oral misoprostol is associated with reduced risk of Cesarean births and has a comparable safety and effe...
To compare sequential dinoprostone and oxytocin for induction of labor at term with intact membranes and an unripe cervix to two simultaneous regimens. Our aim was to confirm findings from...
ABSTRACT: Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of dexamethasone on labor duration and to establish whether dexamethasone plays a role in shorting the duration interval between initiation o...
Post term pregnancy is a risk pregnancy. Aim of the study was to investigate whether induction of labor at gestational age 289(41 weeks+2 days) reduces neonatal morbidity compared to expec...
Since it is a frequent intervention in Obstetrics, labor induction is rarely evaluated from national population-based cohorts. The study aims to assess the frequency of different inductio...
The study aims to evaluate and assess the effectiveness and safety of vaginal administration of isosorbide mono nitrate (IMN) to induce cervical ripening and shorten the interval time betw...
Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).
The position or orientation of the FETUS at near term or during OBSTETRIC LABOR, determined by its relation to the SPINE of the mother and the birth canal. The normal position is a vertical, cephalic presentation with the fetal vertex flexed on the NECK.
Initial drug treatment designed to bring about REMISSION INDUCTION. It is typically a short-term and high-dose drug treatment that is followed by CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY and then MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.
The beginning of true OBSTETRIC LABOR which is characterized by the cyclic uterine contractions of increasing frequency, duration, and strength causing CERVICAL DILATATION to begin (LABOR STAGE, FIRST ).
The repetitive uterine contraction during childbirth which is associated with the progressive dilation of the uterine cervix (CERVIX UTERI). Successful labor results in the expulsion of the FETUS and PLACENTA. Obstetric labor can be spontaneous or induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
