Table 2 summarizes labor and delivery events and outcomes among spontaneous deliveries/ no interventions, augmented spontaneous labor by artificial rupture of membranes (AROM), augmented spontaneous labor utilizing oxytocin, induced labor using cervical ripening
agents and/or oxytocin, and scheduled cesarean deliveries.
The Cook Cervical Ripening
Balloon catheter is comprised of two silicone balloons and uniquely engineered to allow the cervix to naturally and gradually dilate prior to the induction of labor.
In these women, induction with prostaglandins is associated with uterine rupture, they noted, explaining that prostaglandins affect both cervical ripening
and contractions simultaneously, whereas the ideal strategy for induction is likely administration of a cervical ripening
agent before stimulation of contractions.
In contrast, elective inductions without cervical ripening
in multiparous women were not associated with an increased rate of cesarean section.
When asked if the study was mixing cervical ripening
with labor induction, Dr.
Ardana has two products in clinical development and a number of pre clinical compounds including those which address male contraception, female sexual dysfunction and cervical ripening
Misoprostol should not be used for cervical ripening
or labor induction in patients who have had a cesarean delivery or major uterine surgery.
The randomized, double-blind, multi-center study tested three doses of the MVI in 374 women undergoing cervical ripening
and induction of labor at 11 sites across the U.
Searle has become aware of some instances where Cytotec, outside of its approved indication, was used as a cervical ripening
