Importance: Induction of labor is a widely used obstetric intervention, occurring in one in four pregnancies. When the cervix is unfavorable, still many different induction methods are used. Objective: We compared Foley catheter alone to different misoprostol dosages and administration routes, and the combination of Foley catheter with misoprostol. Evidence acquisition: We reviewed the literature on the best induction method regarding their safety and effectiveness, using the outcome measures hyperstimulation, fetal distress, neonatal morbidity and mortality as well as cesarean delivery, vaginal instrumental delivery, and maternal morbidity...

BACKGROUND: Induction of labor (IOL) is an artificial initiation of labor before its spontaneous onset for the purpose of delivery of the fetoplacental unit. Many factors are associated with its success in postdatism. OBJECTIVE: To compare the induction delivery intervals using transcervical Foley catheter plus oxytocin and vaginal misoprostol, and to identify the factors associated with successful induction among postdate singleton multiparae. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was a prospective randomized controlled trial of singleton multiparous pregnant women...

Objective We assessed experience and preferences among term women undergoing induction of labor with oral misoprostol or Foley catheter. Study Design In 18 of the 29 participating hospitals in the PROBAAT-II trial, women were asked to complete a questionnaire within 24 hours after delivery. We adapted a validated questionnaire about expectancy and experience of labor and asked women whether they would prefer the same method again in a future pregnancy. Results The questionnaire was completed by 502 (72%) of 695 eligible women; 273 (54%) had been randomly allocated to oral misoprostol and 229 (46%) to Foley catheter...

INTRODUCTION: The repair of large incisional hernias may occasionally lead to a substantial increase in intra-abdominal pressure (IAP), and rarely to abdominal compartmental syndrome (ACS) with subsequent respiratory, vascular, and visceral complications. Measurement of the IAP has recently become a common practice in monitoring critical patients, even though such measurements were obtained in the early 1900s. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective study involving 54 patients undergoing elective abdominal wall gap repair (mean length, 17...

BACKGROUND: Cesarean scar pregnancy and cervical pregnancy are unrelated forms of pathological pregnancies carrying significant diagnostic and treatment challenges, with a wide range of treatment effectiveness and complication rates ranging from 10% to 62%. At times, life-saving hysterectomy and uterine artery embolization are required to treat complications. Based on our previous success with using a single-balloon catheter for the treatment of cesarean scar pregnancy after local injection of methotrexate, we evaluated the use of a double-balloon catheter to terminate the pregnancy while preventing bleeding without any additive treatment...

BACKGROUND: Labour is induced in 20-30% of all pregnancies. In women with an unfavourable cervix, both oral misoprostol and Foley catheter are equally effective compared with dinoprostone in establishing vaginal birth, but each has a better safety profile. We did a trial to directly compare oral misoprostol with Foley catheter alone. METHODS: We did an open-label randomised non-inferiority trial in 29 hospitals in the Netherlands. Women with a term singleton pregnancy in cephalic presentation, an unfavourable cervix, intact membranes, and without a previous caesarean section who were scheduled for induction of labour were randomly allocated to cervical ripening with 50 μg oral misoprostol once every 4 h or to a 30 mL transcervical Foley catheter...

PURPOSE: To compare maternal and neonatal outcomes of two methods of labor induction in nulliparous women with unfavorable cervix. METHODS: A case-control study was performed on nulliparous women with a cervical Bishop score < 6, who underwent induction of labor with either extra-amniotic Foley catheter (Foley catheter study group) or vaginal tablets of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2 control group). The control group was matched for gestational age and for the indication to induce labor...

Inducing labour with a Foley balloon catheter rather than using oxytocin or prostaglandins is considered to be less risky if the uterus is scarred.(1) It is not known if more fluid in the balloon is more effective without being more dangerous. Volumes of 80 mL and 30 mL were compared in 154 eligible women. Mode of delivery, duration of labour and delivery within 24 h were similar in both groups. However, the second group required oxytocin more frequently. Though more scar dehiscences occurred in the first group, the difference was not significant...

BACKGROUND: Foley catheters are used for cervical ripening during induction of labor. Previous studies suggest that use of a stylette (a thin, rigid wire) to guide catheter insertion decreases insertion failure. However, stylette effects on insertion outcomes have been sparsely studied. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare catheter insertion times, patient-assessed pain levels, and insertion failure rates between women who received a digitally placed Foley catheter for cervical ripening with the aid of a stylette and women who received the catheter without a stylette...

Due to rising rates of labour induction in industrialised countries, safe and effective methods of induction have once again become a focus of interest and research. Prostaglandins are effective for cervical ripening and induction of uterine contractions. They do, however, cause overstimulation of the uterus in up to 20 % of cases, sometimes causing changes in fetal heart rate. Transcervical balloon catheters provide an alternative to prostaglandins for labour induction and have been used for this purpose for almost 50 years...

OBJECTIVE: To study pregnancy outcomes of cervical ripening with Foley catheter, in women who failed to respond to prostaglandin-E2 (PGE2). METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of all patients with a singleton pregnancy, who underwent cervical ripening with vaginal PGE2, between 2013 and 2014, was performed. Patients who failed to respond to a total dose of 6-9 mg PGE2, defined as no change in Bishop score, underwent subsequent ripening with Foley catheter (non-responders group)...
