Abstract

We have shown that, in a busy hospital practice, 90 per cent. of cases of incomplete abortion can be satisfactorily treated on an outpatient basis in the casualty department. Furthermore, general anaesthesia is not necessary in this group, except in the few young nulliparous patients who show evidence of apprehension. Two alternative methods of analgesia have been shown to be safe and effective for uterine evacuation in the casualty department. These are either paracervical block with pethidine premedication or intravenous pethidine and valium.
