OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy of a nitric oxide donor (isosorbide mononitrate) and a prostaglandin E1 analogue (misoprostol) for cervical priming before suction termination of pregnancy. METHODS This was a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial. One hundred twenty-six healthy women requesting termination of pregnancy between 9 and 12 weeks' gestation were recruited.
