  • Labor induction at full-term and post-term pregnancies. [Journal Article]
    Folia Med Cracov 2019; 59(4):79-94Modrzyńska A, Radoń-Pokracka M, … Huras H
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intracervical dinoprostone seems to be safer, but less effective in labor induction than vaginal misoprostol. Following PGE2 by other methods increased efficacy of induction in this cohort.
  • Mechanical methods for induction of labour. [Review]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019; 10:CD001233de Vaan MD, Ten Eikelder ML, … Boulvain M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Low- to moderate-quality evidence shows mechanical induction with a balloon is probably as effective as induction of labour with vaginal PGE2. However, a balloon seems to have a more favourable safety profile. More research on this comparison does not seem warranted.Moderate-quality evidence shows a balloon catheter may be slightly less effective as oral misoprostol, but it remains unclear if there is a difference in safety outcomes for the neonate. When compared to low-dose vaginal misoprostol, low-quality evidence shows a balloon may be less effective, but probably has a better safety profile.Future research could be focused more on safety aspects for the neonate and maternal satisfaction.
