Randomized and controlled trial to determine safety and efficacy of Foley’s catheter and PGE2 gel for induction of labor

Roma Dalal, Maurvi Patel, Hardi Shukla.

Abstract
Background: The goal of obstetrics is a pregnancy that results in a healthy infant and a healthy mother. During medical or obstetrics complications of pregnancy, cervical ripening and induction of labor are often required. Different methods are available for that.

Aims and Objectives: Randomized and control trial has been conducted to determine safety and efficacy of Foley’s catheter and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) gel for induction of labor.

Materials and Methods: Randomized and controlled trial has been conducted on 200 study participant who fullfield inclusion criteria in Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, GMERS Medical College, Sola during the period of July 2017–July 2019. Statistical analysis was done by descriptive statistics and qualitative method.

Results: Both groups cerviprim and Foley’s catheter are comparable for cervical ripening for induction of labor in terms of safety and efficacy as there was no statistically significant observation for obstetric and perinatal outcome.

Conclusion: Foley’s catheter is equally dependable method for cervical ripening for induction of labor as cerviprim gel as it is cost effective and easily available.

Key words: Cervical Ripening; Labor Induction; Cerviprim Gel; Foley’s Catheter
