Disease relevance of Abortion, Induced


High impact information on Abortion, Induced

  • To identify these risks, we analyzed information from two separate sets of data collected by the Centers for Disease Control: that of the Joint Program for the Study of Abortion, a multicenter prospective study of nearly 165,000 legally induced abortions; and that of a national surveillance of abortion-related mortality [6].
  • Cervical pre-dilation with misoprostol may be considered in all women having surgically induced abortions [7].
  • Letter: Alpha-fetoprotein during mid-trimester induced abortion [8].
  • Longer term inhalation, as in addicts, produces a syndrome similar to that due to B12 neuropathy, and long term exposure to low concentrations results in an increased abortion rate and neuropathy, particularly in dental personnel [9].
  • Finally, GnRH analog suppression in PCOS permitted normalization of the follicular phase endocrine pattern, achievement of good ovulatory (76%) and pregnancy (28%) rates, and avoidance of multiple pregnancies; however, luteal phase steroid secretion was abnormal, and the abortion rate remained elevated (43%) [10].
