Induction of labour at term with oral misoprostol versus a Foley catheter (PROBAAT-II): a multicentre randomised controlled non-inferiority trial

Ten Eikelder MLG et al.

Editor's comment: Prof. Jim Thornton: PROBAAT2 trial
Foley catheter and oral misoprostol appear to be of equivalent effectiveness for labour induction.  The primary outcome of this large, and well-designed and conducted trial, a composite of post-partum haemorrhage or birth asphyxia, did not differ, and there were no important safety differences.
