OB GYN To GO 016: Misoprostal in Operative Hysteroscopy with Dr. Nima Patel

We spoke with Dr. Nima Patel  about the paper by Selk and Kroft- Misoprostal in Operative Hysteroscopy, A systematic Review and meta-analysis that appeared in Obstetrics and Gynecology  Vol. 118 No. 4 in October, 2011.  The paper reviews randomized controlled studies of patients undergoing operative hysteroscopy unsing misoprostal looking for effects of its use as a cervical dilation agent versus side effects and concluded that current evidence does not support routine use of pre-operative misoprostal in operative hysteroscopy.
