Study Description
Brief Summary:
To compare sequential dinoprostone and oxytocin for induction of labor at term with intact membranes and an unripe cervix to two simultaneous regimens. Our aim was to confirm findings from smaller trials and add to data on fetal safety.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Labor Induction Cervical Ripening Drug: dinoprostone

Detailed Description:
This study is a non-blinded, three arm randomized trial at 3 sites. Entry criteria were: >36 weeks’ singleton, cephalic gestation with intact membranes and an unripe cervix (Bishop’s score <6). Study arms were: 1) dinoprostone vaginal insert (Cervidil) for 12 hours followed by oxytocin, 2) dinoprostone vaginal insert (Cervidil) for 12 hours with simultaneous oxytocin, and 3) intracervical dinoprostone gel (Prepidil)(one dose) followed by immediate oxytocin. Primary outcome measure was the rate of vaginal delivery <24 hours. Secondary outcomes were randomization to delivery interval, rate of cesarean delivery (CD) for non reassuring fetal status (NRFS) and rate of uterine hyperstimulation.
