BACKGROUND: Misoprostol has been used for induction of labor either as a cervical ripening agent or as an abortifacient. Its use in women with previous cesarean births may be associated with an increased risk of uterine rupture.
CASE: We describe 3 cases of pregnancy termination between 18 and 24 weeks' gestation in women with previous classical cesarean deliveries. Misoprostol was used successfully in all three cases without complications.
CONCLUSION: Judicious use of misoprostol results in successful pregnancy termination in women with previous classical cesarean deliveries without uterine rupture.
