VAGINAL FETAL fIBRONECTIN AS A SELECTION CRITERION FOR llNDUCTION OF LA

MOHAMMAD MOSTAFA GAD,

Abstract


Induction of labor is an integral part of modem obstetric practice. Numerous maternal and fetal conditions exist that require induction of labor to effect delivery in spite of an unfavorable cervix (Magann et a/.,1995).


A munber of problems related to induction of labor,such . as iatrogenic premativity from uncertainties about the expected date of confinement and protracted labor resulting from the unreadiness of the uterus, can at present, only be circmnvented by careful selection of candidates (Ahner et al., 1995b).



To a large extent, the success of the induction oflabor depends on whether the myometrimn has undergone its preparatory changes for delivery and on its sensitivity to labor-inducing agents (Kofler et al.,
1993). These factors correlate both with the maturity of the cervix and with the length of gestation (Jung et al., 1984).



One course of action designed to mmumze the number of unsuccessful inductions lies in a more careful selection of patients. Up until today a modified Bishop score was most cmmnonly used to detennine the existence of conditions favorable to induction, though its predictive value is at times, unfortunately, far from optimal (Almer et al., 1995b).
