This article reports on a study comparing 600 mcg oral misoprostol as an alternative to manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) for the treatment of incomplete abortion. This study confirms results of similar studies using the same protocol showing that 600 mcg oral misoprostol is a highly effective and safe method for this indication.
