The unfavourable cervix: improving the Bishop score with the Foley's catheter.
The balloon Foley's Catheter applied in the extra-amniotic space was used to ripen the cervix prior to planned induction of labour or induced abortion in 88 patients. This procedure was effective in significantly improving the Bishops Score to inducible levels in 97% of the patients. The Foley's Catheter is cheap, easily available for use, associated with very minimal complications and therefore provide a readily available and efficacious method of cervical ripening.
