Mohinee Dhaka, Pravin kumar, KP Banerjee, Reena Pant

Background: In cervical ripening, before induction, is needed to increase the success of labour induction, to reduce complications and to diminish the rate of caesarean section and duration of labour. Aim & Objective of the study was to successive induction of labour depend on cervical status at time of induction, Aim was to prove efficacy and safety of intracervical foley’s catheter in cervical ripening for induction of labour. Methods: A randomized prospective study was conducted in department of obstetrics & gynaecology, SMS hospital, Jaipur. 50 women at term with Bishop’s score <5 with various indications of induction of labour was enrolled for insertion of intracervical foley’s catheter. Results:Mean pre-induction Bishop's score was 2.26 ± 0.83 hr and Mean post induction Bishop's score was 8.02 ± 3.22 hr. Mean incremental change in the Bishop’s score was 6.56 ± 1.92 hr. Mean induction to active labour interval was 8.66 hrs and mean induction to delivery interval was 11.07 ± 4.82 hrs.Need of labour augmented by oxytocin + ARM in 58.00% cases,, most common indication of LSCS was failed induction 66.67% and APGAR score at 1 minute and at 5 minute was 6.72 ± 0.80 and 7.94 ± 0.42. Conclusion: This study showed that intracervical foley’s catheter was effective for cervical ripening.
