Recent advances in second-trimester abortion: an evidence-based review



Recent advances in second-trimester abortion: an evidence-based review



American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology 200(4): 347-356



The proportion of US abortions performed in the second trimester has varied little since 1992. Although 30 years of cumulative data corroborate the safety of dilation and evacuation (D&E), the most commonly used method of second-trimester abortion in the United States, both D&E and alternative induction regimens continue to evolve such that the traditional safety gap between medical and surgical regimens has narrowed. Providers now have options that allow them to either expedite D&E by diminishing the cervical-ripening period or reduce induction abortion intervals during medical induction.
