Pregnancy complications, including spontaneous abortion, are increasingly common reasons for teenage girls to seek medical care in pediatric emergency departments (EDs). A protocol was implemented in our department to identify patients with spontaneous abortion who would be candidates for outpatient management. We describe three cases of spontaneous abortion managed with suction curettage in our pediatric ED in collaboration with our obstetric/gynecologic colleagues. There are no reports in the pediatric literature regarding the role of suction curettage in the pediatric ED.
