OBJECTIVE: To analyze the clinical and sonographic variables that predicts the success of labor induction. STUDY DESIGN: We studied the Bishop score, cervical length and parity in 196 pregnant women in the prediction of successful vaginal delivery within 24 h of induction. Logistic regression and segmentation analysis were performed. RESULTS: Cervical length (odds ratio (OR) 1.089, P<0.001), Bishop score (OR 0.751, P=0.001) and parity (OR 4.7, P<0.001) predict the success of labor induction. In a global analysis of the variables studied, the best statistic sequence that predicts the labor induction was found when we introduced parity in the first place. The success of labor induction in nulliparous was 50.8 and 83.3% in multiparous women (P=0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: Cervical length, Bishop score and parity, integrated in a flow chart, provide independent prediction of vaginal delivery within 24 h of induction.
