ABSTRACTObjective: To evaluate efficacy of misoprostol by intrauterine route for the prevention of the obstetrical hemorrhage and to know its effects collaterals.
Patients and methods: Clinical and randomized test with 200 patients to those who one took place to them Caesarean. The Group A was applied placebo and the group B misoprostol (group B; 800 µg) intrauterine, after the birth of its newborns. The necessity of additional uterotonics was compared, loss of hemoglobin and hematocrit, and the effects collaterals.
Results: In group B it diminished the necessity of additional uterotonics to 50% and the loss of hemoglobin in 39.6%. In the group greater loss of 3 was registered g of hemoglobin in 13 versus 3% of the patients. With respect to the hematocrit, its loss was reduced in 40.6%. The patients in those who the hematocrit in more fell than 10%, registered themselves in 7 versus 1% cases. The effects collaterals were few and not so serious.
Conclusion: The intrauterine combination of misoprostol and oxitocin diminishes the postcaesarean sanguineous loss and has brings about few effects collaterals.
