The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and acceptability of 400μg of sublingual misoprostol as first-line treatment of incomplete abortion in Gabon. The rate of successful uterine evacuation was very high (95.7%) as was satisfaction among participants (99.3% satisfied or very satisfied). The findings add to the evidence that this regimen can be successfully introduced in low resource settings.
