BACKGROUND: To compare the efficacy of two routes of prostaglandin E2 administration (Intravenous and Intramuscular) for treatment of missed abortion this study was conducted. Regarding the pilot cases of missed abortion admitted for termination of pregnancy intravenous administration of PGE2 that had higher efficacy compare to intramuscular route, investigators designed this study. METHODS: In a randomized clinical trail, 50 women with confirmed missed abortion received 250-500 μg prostaglandins E2 either intravenously or intramuscularly...

A combination of antiprogesterone mifepristone and prostaglandin analogue misoprostol provides an effective non surgical method for termination of pregnancy up to gestational age of 63 days. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of this medical regimen for termination of pregnancy up to 63 days of pregnancy. A hospital based prospective study was carried out in department of obstetrics and gynecology at Nepal Medical College Teaching Hospital (NMCTH) for a period of one year where 100 women requesting for medical abortion were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Little information is available about the incidence of complications from vacuum aspiration for first-trimester abortion after cervical preparation with prostaglandin analogues. We compared incidence of complications from vacuum aspiration in women who had had cervical preparation with misoprostol and those who had not. METHODS: We did a randomised parallel-group trial at 14 centres in nine countries between Oct 22, 2002, and Sept 24, 2005. Healthy women seeking first-trimester abortion were randomly assigned via a computer-generated randomisation sequence stratified by centre, to receive vaginal administration of either two 200 μg tablets of misoprostol or two placebo tablets 3 h before abortion by vacuum aspiration...

BACKGROUND: Surgical abortion by vacuum aspiration or dilatation and curettage has been the method of choice for early pregnancy termination since the 1960s. Medical abortion became an alternative method of first trimester pregnancy termination with the availability of prostaglandins in the early 1970s and anti-progesterones in the 1980s. The most widely researched drugs are prostaglandins (PGs) alone, mifepristone alone, methotrexate alone, mifepristone with prostaglandins and methotrexate with prostaglandins...

REVIEW
Sheila A Doggrell
Nearly 20% of all pregnancies end in early pregnancy failure, and surgical evacuation of retained products of conception is often used to manage this failure. Misoprostol is an inexpensive, stable analog of prostaglandin E(1), and is powerful at contracting the uterus. With intravaginal misoprostol, the peak plasma levels are lower, but the levels after 4 hours are higher, than after oral or sublingual administration. With oral misoprostol, the evacuation rates in early pregnancy varied from about 50% up to 96%...

OBJECTIVE: To assess efficacy, safety and cost effectiveness of misoprostol (prostaglandin E1 analogue) for termination of pregnancy. METHODS: A descriptive study was conducted from March 2003 to December 2004, at Fauji Foundation Hospital Rawalpindi. A total of 200 patients, at 10-28 weeks of gestation, requiring termination of pregnancy were included. Each woman received first dose of 400 microg of misoprostol vaginally. Second dose of 400 microg of misoprostol was administered after 4 hours, according to the cervical dilatation, softening and uterine contractions...

The purpose of the research was to evaluate clinical course and efficiency of the method of termination of pregnancy in the first end second trimesters by means of antiprogesterone. 384 women aged 15 to 45 in the first end second trimesters of pregnancy were investigated. 300 women had an early pregnancy (range=2-7 weeks) requesting abortion. All these women first took 600 mg antiprogesterone pencroftone ("Pencroft-Fharma", Russia) and 48 hours later - 400 mkg prostaglandin misoprostol. 84 patients with gestation period ranged from 14 to 22 weeks...

BACKGROUND: In most pregnancies that miscarry, arrest of embryonic or fetal development occurs some time (often weeks) before the miscarriage occurs. Ultrasound examination can reveal abnormal findings during this phase by demonstrating anembryonic pregnancies or embryonic or fetal death. Treatment before 14 weeks has traditionally been surgical but medical treatments may be effective, safe, and acceptable, as may be waiting for spontaneous miscarriage. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effectiveness, safety and acceptability of any medical treatment for early pregnancy failure (anembryonic pregnancies or embryonic and fetal deaths before 24 weeks)...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the rates of complications of dilatation and evacuation (D&E) in the second trimester of pregnancy. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of early complications after D&E in the second trimester (group A: 1988-1994) in comparison with D&E in the first trimester (group B: 1997) and with the induction of abortion by extra-amniotic application of prostaglandins in the second trimester of pregnancy (literature). RESULTS: The overall complication rate of D&E was statistically significantly higher in the second than in the first trimester (p < 0...

BACKGROUND: Clinical methods generally used to evaluate the completeness of medical abortion are not accurate. There are no published reports evaluating the role of routine ultrasonography in monitoring the outcome of medical abortion. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether routine transvaginal ultrasonography (TVS) at the follow-up visit after medical abortion can accurately identify women who will require surgical intervention. DESIGN: Retrospective review of medical records and charts of all women undergoing medical abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy between January 1999 and December 2001...

Menstrual induction refers to early uterine evacuation without laboratory confirmation of pregnancy in women with delayed menses. Mechanical aspiration is the method used in many countries but, as suggested by a pilot study, mifepristone followed by a prostaglandin analogue could also be effective. We launched the present study to evaluate the efficacy and side effects of 150 mg of mifepristone, followed 2 days later by 0.4 mg misoprostol vaginally, for menstrual induction among women with a menstrual delay of up to 7 days...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL

INTRODUCTION: Studies of conservative management of early miscarriage have questioned the need for post abortem curettage. METHODS: A prospective, randomised study was carried out to clarify the effect of vaginal administration of a prostaglandin E1 analogue (gemeprost) versus surgical management (curettage) of miscarriages at up to twelve weeks of gestation. A questionnaire revealed discomfort as bleeding and pain. RESULTS: The study comprised 61 patients: group 1 (n: 27) with an endometrial thickness less than 10 mm managed by expectancy, and group 2 with an endometrial thickness greater than 10 mm; group 2 was randomised to group 2A (n: 17), given gemeprost, and group 2B (n: 17), underwent curettage...

The antiprogesterone mifepristone in combination with a suitable prostaglandin provides an effective method for induction of abortion in early pregnancy up to 63 days of gestation. The combination of 600 mg mifepristone followed by 1 mg of gemeprost vaginal pessary 48 h later is one of the standard regimens in practice, which is registered in several countries in Europe. In 1995, we reduced the doses for both mifepristone and gemeprost to 200 mg and 0.5 mg respectively, as this was shown to decrease significantly the incidence of side effects whilst maintaining a high efficacy...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of second-trimester abortions using transcervical catheter insertion and extraovular prostaglandin (PG) administration. METHODS: Ninety women admitted for terminations of pregnancy at 17-24 weeks' gestation had transcervical catheters inserted and extraovular PGE(2) administered. Success rates were recorded, measured by induction of abortion within 24 hours, need for a complement uterine curettage, and complications...

Multiple clinical studies demonstrate the efficacy of medical abortion with mifepristone or methotrexate followed by a prostaglandin analogue. However, assessing predictors of success, including regimen, is difficult because of regimen variability and a lack of direct comparisons. This meta-analysis estimates rates of primary clinical outcomes of medical abortion (successful abortion, incomplete abortion, and viable pregnancy) and compares them by regimen and gestational age. We identified 54 studies published from 1991 to 1998 using mifepristone with misoprostol (18), mifepristone with other prostaglandin analogues (23), and methotrexate with misoprostol (13)...
