Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of a prostaglandin E-2 (PGE(2)) vaginal insert with those of oxytocin for labor induction. The present study also examined whether its use reduces the rate of cesarean delivery in term pregnancies with premature rupture of membranes (PROM) and low Bishop scores.
