Western Galilee Hospital-Nahariya
  Purpose
Hypothesis: The induction of labor in patients with unfavorable Bishop score is a challenging obstetrical process, and may be influenced or complicated by the cervical ripening method used. We will conduct a comparative study of the foley catheter vs the cervical ripening double balloon (Cook medical, GPN: G48149). We will compare the failure rates, cesarean section rate, infections and postpartum complications, especially endometritis.

Condition Intervention
Induction of Labor Cesarean Endometritis Device: Mechanical induction of labor Device: Double Balloon Device: Foley Catheter

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Prospective Comparative Study of Induction of Labor With a Cervical Ripening Double Balloon vs Foley Catheter

Further study details as provided by Western Galilee Hospital-Nahariya:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Success of labor induction [ Time Frame: Postpartum period ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Postpartum endometritis rate [ Time Frame: The postpartum period ]
  • Cesarean section rate [ Time Frame: Delivery ]

Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: January 2006
Study Completion Date: May 2008
Primary Completion Date: February 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
We will conduct a comparative study of the foley catheter vs the cervical ripening double balloon (Cook medical, GPN: G48149). We will compare the failure rates, cesarean section rate, infections and postpartum complications, especially endometritis. The study will include 200 parturients, 100 primiparous and 100 multiparous women. We will randomize each group to induction with the foley catheter or the cervical ripening double balloon. We will compare the failure rates, cesarean section rate, infectious and other postpartum complications, especially endometritis.
