Abstract

(Abstracted from Lancet 2017;390:669–680)

Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy such as preeclampsia are leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality worldwide and can be reduced by an expeditious delivery. In places where resources are scarce (both personnel and equipment to carefully monitor mother and child during labor), 2 inexpensive methods of induction to more quickly get active labor going are recommended by the World Health Organization: use of a transcervical Foley catheter or low-dose oral misoprostol pills.
