Assessment of a new prostaglandin E2 gel in labour induction.


Prostaglandin E2 in a new gel form (Prepidil; Upjohn) was found to be as efficient in inducing labour as artificial rupture of membranes combined with intravenous oxytocin administration. There were no side-effects in the 25 patients in the study group. Prepidil gel has the advantage of simplicity and patient acceptance.
