Among 114 women with early spontaneous abortions, low β-human chorionic gonadotropin levels and no ultrasonographically demonstrable residual tissue in the uterine cavity, 68 underwent uterine curettage, and 46 were managed conservatively. No complications, such as bleeding or infection, were observed in either group, and the probability of conception, outcome of subsequent pregnancies and rate of subsequent abortions were similar. Curettage offers no advantage over conservative management in selected patients with early abortions.
