dinoprostone 0.5 mg;
colloidal silicon dioxide;
Prepidil - stimulating labor.
Stimulates smooth muscles, modulates the reaction of internal organs to various hormonal effects.
Increases blood supply to the cervix, contributes to its softening and opening.

Preparation of the cervix for childbirth.

Any dose of the drug that causes a prolonged increase in uterine tone poses a certain risk to the embryo or fetus.
In experimental animal studies, prostaglandin E 2 causes an increase in skeletal abnormalities in rats and rabbits; embryotoxicity of dinoprostone in rats and rabbits has also been identified.
Prostaglandins are excreted in breast milk in very small quantities, regardless of the duration of delivery.
Hypersensitivity, the presence of anamnestic information about cesarean section, extensive surgical interventions on the uterus, difficult and / or traumatic births, 6 or more full-term pregnancies, mismatch of the size of the pelvis of the mother and head of the fetus, abnormal position of the fetus, previous distress of the fetus, opening of the fetal bladder, spotting during pregnancy from the genital tract of unspecified etiology, infection of the lower genital tract.
Abnormal contractions of the uterus, vomiting and / or diarrhea, changes in fetal heart rate, fetal distress, reduced status of the newborn (Apgar score below 7).
Enhances the toxotropic activity of oxytocin.
How to take, course of administration and dosage
The contents of the syringe (3 g of gel corresponds to 0.5 mg of dinoprostone) using the attached catheter is injected into the cervical canal (below the level of the internal pharynx). After the procedure, you must lie on your back for 10-15 minutes to minimize leakage of the gel.
