Abstract

Induction of midtrimester abortion using 40 mg intra-amniotic prostaglandin F was performed on 276 patients. Gestational age and fetal status had no effect on injection-to-abortion time while multiparity and the concomitant use of laminaria appeared to decrease the abortion time. The side effect and complication rates were acceptable and the results compare favorably with those of other midtrimester abortion techniques.
