Cervical Ripening Induction of Labor Device: Cervical Ripening Balloon, Cook Medical Inc. Drug: Dinoprostone Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Further study details as provided by Medical University of Graz:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • time interval from primary treatment to delivery [ Time Frame: maximum of 72 hours ]
    the time interval between the first application of the cervical ripening balloon (therapy arm 1) to delivery and the time between first application of dinoprostone vaginal-insert (therapy arm 2) to delivery is measured


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • progress of labor [ Time Frame: maximum of 72 hours ]
    time from balloon-application to dilatation of the cervix (cervical opening > 3cm, or Bishop Score ≥ 9 ) in therapy arm 1 and from dinoprostone-vaginal-insert-application to dilatation of the cervix (cervical opening > 3cm, or Bishop Score ≥ 9 ) in therapy arm 2

  • vaginal delivery [ Time Frame: maximum of 72 hours ]
    Number of patients who achieve spontaneous vaginal delivery or vaginal-operative delivery in therapy arm 1 and 2.

  • failed induction of labor [ Time Frame: maximum of 72 hours ]
    Number of patients who received caesarean section after frustrating induction of labor. Frustrating induction is defined as application of the cervical-ripening-balloon + 2 times application of dinoprostone-vaginal-insert in therapy arm 1 and 3 times application of dinoprostone-vaginal-insert in therapy arm 2.

  • patient's satisfaction [ Time Frame: participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 5-7 days ]
    Patient's satisfaction with treatment is evaluated with a questionnaire within 48 h after delivery

  • maternal parameters [ Time Frame: primary treatment - 48h postpartal, leading to a maximum time frame of 5 days ]
    signs of infection (temperature, CRP, WBC), childbirth--related injuries,need for epidural in therapy arm 1 and 2.

  • fetal parameters [ Time Frame: primary treatment - fetal hospital discharge, with an expected maximum of 3 months ]
    umbilical cord blood values, apgar score, fetal birth weight,number of admissions to ICU and days at ICU in therapy arm 1 and 2.


Estimated Enrollment: 253
Study Start Date: November 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
