Potency and acceptability of oral misoprostol compared with vaginal misoprostol prior to first trimester abortions
Author(s): Dr. Varsha Kotwal
Abstract: Present study was done to assess the effectiveness and acceptability of oral misoprostol compared with vaginal misoprostol for cervical priming before termination of first trimester pregnancy. Recently, prostaglandin E1 analogue misoprostol has caught much attention as cervical priming agent. Prostaglandins are used in different doses and different routes considering the different available results. Misoprostol was originally marketed for prevention of peptic ulcers caused by Prostaglandin synthetase inhibitor (NSAIDS) but now it has a widespread role in obstetric practice specially as a cervical priming agent. The aim of present study is to compare oral misoprostol versus vaginal misoprostol for cervical ripening and to assess its acceptability among women.
