Techniques late abortion

If a decision on the termination of pregnancy at a late term experts define the method by which will be carried out abortions.Currently, there are three methods: salt priming, low caesarean section births and artificial.

When using this method of late abortion under the control of ultrasound perform amniocentesis (fetal bladder puncture) and introduced into the amniotic fluid hypertonic solution of sodium chloride.As a result of this procedure and fetal death occurs within 24 - 48 hours have miscarriage.

Artificial childbirth - a late miscarriage caused by the use of drugs.When it all happens in the same way as in the spontaneous labor, but contractions caused by artificial means.

Due to the intensive development of the fetus, an abortion at 13 weeks threatens the woman a variety of complications.This period is the most undesirable for abortion.But at this time of pregnancy is often detected frozen.To preserve the health and life of women in such cases, abortion is inevitable.

Abortion at 13 weeks usually do an instrumental way, iefruit scraping of the uterine body, but at an infectious or inflammatory process, this method is contraindicated.Perhaps the use of 13 weeks and an autopsy of membranes, followed by suspension of cargo on the presenting part of the fetus.In this case, 50% of women have a late abortion protracted, lasting more than a day and sometimes entailing bleeding, cervical tears, infection.
