Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine whether preinduction cervical ripening with prostaglandin E(2) (PgE(2)) gel in patients with one previous cesarean section may be used with the same safety and efficacy as in patients without a uterine scar. Primiparous patients (n = 94) with one previous cesarean section were retrospectively compared to nulliparous patients (n = 866). Both groups underwent preinduction cervical ripening with 2 mg intracervical PgE(2) gel. Logistic regression wasperformed to control for confounding factors. Our statistical power was 90% for detecting a doubling of the complication rate, from 10 to 20%. There were no significant differences in the duration of ruptured membranes or length of labor between the two groups. No significant differences were detected in the rate or indications for cesarean section, presence of thick meconium, epidural anesthesia use, amnionitis, ormaternal and neonatal morbidity. There were no cases of uterine rupture in either group. PgE(2) gel may be used with the same safety and efficacy in patients with previous cesarean section as in nulliparas.
