After extensive consultation with an expert group, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) has updated its guidance on misoprostol-only regimens. The guidance, available in the form of a chart and divided by stages of pregnancy, provides recommendations for dosages and routes of administration for misoprostol use in obstetrics and gynecology, including: medically induced abortion, medical management of miscarriage, cervical preparation for surgical abortion, fetal death, induction of labor, and management of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). This one-page document includes a link to the chart, last revised in 2012, and comments on the newly-revised and expanded guidance.
