Comparison of Misoprostol and PGE2 Gel for Induction of Labour in Women With Premature Rupture of Membranes at Term
Comparison of Misorostol & PGE2 Gel for Immediate Induction of Labour for Premature Ropture of Membranes at Term

Induction of labour with vaginal misoprostol, in women with premature rupture of membranes at term, results in significant shortening of induction to delivery time in comparison to vaginal PGE2 gel induction.
