Fetal urine production after induction of labor with prostaglandin E2

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The effect of prostaglandin E2 on fetal urine production was examined in women undergoing labor induction. An effect may be expected, because the administration of indomethacin, a potent antiprostaglandin, has been shown to cause a decrease in fetal urine production and subsequent oligohydramnios. The mean hourly fetal urine production before and 4 hours after vaginal application of prostaglandin E2 were similar (38 and 43 ml per hour, respectively). The application of prostaglandin E2 need not be taken into consideration when fetal urine production is assessed.
