Other mechanical methods for pre-induction cervical ripening
. Semin Perinatol.
For the misoprostol group, using the hospital protocol, a 50 [micro]g tablet was inserted into the posterior fornix of the vagina, and it was repeated 6 hourly until an adequate contraction pattern (3-5 contractions in ten minutes, each lasting between 40 and 60 seconds), sufficient cervical ripening
(Bishop score greater than 7 or cervical dilatation of at least 4 cm), or spontaneous rupture of membranes was achieved, or a maximum of four doses had been given.
This study is the first double-blinded, prospective randomized controlled clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of intravaginal misoprostol in cervical ripening
and labor induction in term pregnancy in China.

All patients in both groups who did not go into spontaneous labour after 48 hours were categorised as 'failed labour induction' and together with the women with post-term pregnancies of [greater than or equal to]40 weeks and 10 days managed according to our departmental protocol of cervical ripening
and labour induction (transcervical Foley catheter or intravaginal misoprostol) to ensure delivery before 42 weeks' gestation.
