Of the 60 patients in the group receiving IM prostaglandin, two required the use of additional uterotonics, compared to 10 of the 60 patients who received rectal misoprostol RR 0. Evidence profiles in the form of GRADE tables were prepared for comparisons of interest, including the assessment and judgments for each outcome, and the estimated risks.

Misoprostol any route versus injectable uterotonics Evidence was extrapolated from one systematic review which evaluated a number of routes and doses of misoprostol versus injectable uterotonics for the prevention of PPH. For women in the postoperative period after the surgical repair of a simple obstetric urinary fistula, short duration bladder catheterization 7 to 10 days is recommended as an alternative to longer duration of catheterization.
