This study evaluates the addition of transcervical Foley catheter balloon and vaginal prostaglandin E2 in induction of labor at term. Half of participants will be used combine transcervical Foley catheter balloon and vaginal prostaglandin E2, while the other half will be used alone vaginal prostaglandin E2.
An unfavorable cervix during induction decreases the success rate of labor induction and vaginal delivery. Therefore it is required to apply cervical ripening methods for unfavorable cervices. Application of transcervical Foley catheter is an effective mechanical method and has the advantages of lower cost and lowest rate of fetal heart rate changes due to tachysystole compared with PGE1 and PGE2. Despite the advantages of mechanical methods, PGE1 and PGE2 are reported to be more effective than mechanical methods to achieve vaginal delivery within 24 hours. Although there are a lot of studies comparing PGE1, PGE2 and transcervical Foley balloon catheter separately and PGE1 combined with transcervical Foley balloon catheter, less is known about combined usage of PGE2 and transcervical Foley balloon catheter.

Induction of labor is a process of stimulating uterine contractions before the onset of labor, with a goal of achieving vaginal birth. The cervix (the lower part of the uterus that connect...
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.
Women undergoing mechanical cervical ripening for labor induction will be randomized to Dilapan-S® versus Foley bulb. The investigators hypothesized that osmotic cervical dilators (Dilapa...
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...
The aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness and safety of Foley's catheter and misoprostol in cervical ripening.
To identify predictors of successful cervical ripening using double-balloon catheter (DBC) for labor induction among women with previous cesarean delivery (PCD) and unfavorable cervix at term.
To assess available evidence regarding the use of oxytocin in conjunction with Foley balloon (FB) for cervical ripening.
To examine discomfort/pain associated with the Foley catheter insertion process and explore factors affecting discomfort/pain.
To assess whether outpatient cervical ripening with a transcervical Foley catheter in parous women undergoing elective induction of labor shortens the total duration of time from admission to the labo...
The optimal method for induction of labor for multiparous women with an unfavorable cervix is unknown.
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).
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
Incompetent UTERINE CERVIX is usually diagnosed in the second trimester of PREGNANCY. It is characterized by passive painless cervical dilation in the absence of UTERINE CONTRACTION; BLEEDING; INFECTION; and sometimes with the amniotic sac (AMNIOTIC MEMBRANE) bulging through the partially dilated cervix. Left untreated, this condition may lead to premature pregnancy loss, such as HABITUAL ABORTION.
Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.
A cytological test finding often from PAP SMEARS that shows abnormal lesions of SQUAMOUS EPITHELIAL CELLS of the CERVIX. It is a diagnostic criterion used in the Bethesda System for UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS and represents the PAP TEST result that is abnormal. Although squamous intraepithelial lesions test result does not mean UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS it requires follow-ups (e.g., HPV DNA TESTS; and COLPOSCOPY).
