Author(s): Rehana Rashid, Zohra Younus, Javed Ahmad Sofi and Ufaque Muzaffar
Abstract: Introduction: Induction of labour can be defined as the artificial initiation of labour, before its spontaneous onset, for the purpose of delivery of the fetoplacental unit [1, 2]. It is a commonly performed procedure in obstetrics, with an incidence ranging from 5% to 30% of all pregnancies [3]. Cervical ripening has got a close relationship with the success rate of delivery [4].
Materials and Methods: Induction of labour can be defined as the artificial initiation of labour, before its spontaneous onset, for the purpose of delivery of the fetoplacental unit [1, 2]. It is a commonly performed procedure in obstetrics, with an incidence ranging from 5% to 30% of all pregnancies [3]. Cervical ripening has got a close relationship with the success rate of delivery [4].
Discussion: In our study, the mean gestational age in group a patients was 38.64 weeks and 38.29 weeks in group b patients. The p value was 0.147.Mode of delivery in group a patients was FTVD in 30% and LSCS in 20%. In group B patients, mode of delivery was FTVD in 29.3% and LSCS in 20.7% patients. P-value was 0.863.
Conclusion: Our study concluded with the fact that induction of labour can be equally achieved by both intra cervical foleys catheter and PGE2.
