To compare the impact of 400-microgram self-administered vaginal versus self-administered oral misoprostol at home on preoperative cervical ripening in nulliparous women prior to outpatient hysteroscopy.
There is no consensus on the effect of misoprostol on cervical ripening for nulliparous women. The aim of the study is to compare the impact of 400-microgram self-administered vaginal versus self-administered oral misoprostol at home on preoperative cervical ripening in nulliparous women prior to outpatient hysteroscopy.

The purpose of this study is to study if misoprostol administered orally is at least as effective as misoprostol administered vaginally for cervical ripening and the induction of labor. Th...
Local current protocol for cervical ripening in 1st trimester miscarriage recommends 400 µg of misoprostol intravaginally 3 hours before uterine evacuation. This regime has been recommend...
The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy for cervical ripening in labor induction between titrated and conventional oral misoprostol
We wish to determine whether patients undergoing cervical ripening with an infusion of saline will have a lower c-section rate than patients who undergo cervical ripening with misoprostol.
A. Null Hypothesis: In term pregnancies complicated by diabetes, there is no difference in the time interval from start of induction to delivery when outpatient cervical ripening and labo...
Misoprostol is a common agent used to ripen the cervix and induce labor, yet there is no clear evidence of the optimal number of doses needed to achieve a higher rate of vaginal delivery.
In South Africa, access to second-trimester abortion services, which are generally performed using medical induction with misoprostol alone, is challenging for many women. We aimed to estimate the cos...
Medical management of early pregnancy loss is an alternative to uterine aspiration, but standard medical treatment with misoprostol commonly results in treatment failure. We compared the efficacy and ...
The aim of the study was to evaluate the value of vaginal misoprostol 6 h prior to intrauterine device (IUD) insertion in women with previous Caesarean delivery.
The number of elective abortions has been stable for several decades. Many factors explain women's choice of abortion in cases of unplanned pregnancies. Early initiation of contraceptive use and a cho...
A synthetic analog of natural prostaglandin E1. It produces a dose-related inhibition of gastric acid and pepsin secretion, and enhances mucosal resistance to injury. It is an effective anti-ulcer agent and also has oxytocic properties.
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 network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
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.
A branch of dentistry dealing with diseases of the oral and paraoral structures and the oral management of systemic diseases. (Hall, What is Oral Medicine, Anyway? Clinical Update: National Naval Dental Center, March 1991, p7-8)
