The efficiency of misoprostol in the termination of missed abortion was estimated. The group of 66 patients aged 19 - 37, who received 400 microg of vaginal misoprostol for termination of missed abortion was subjected. The overall success rate for a complete abortion was 30.3%, for incomplete abortion 25.8% and in a group of 27.2% women there was no need for cervix canal dilatating during the excochleation of uterus cavity. 16.7% cases failed. The results obtained in this study led us to the conclusion that 400 microg of vaginal misoprostol can induce the termination of missed abortion or dilatation of the uterus' canal.
