The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of mifepristone in combination with sublingual misoprostol for the medical management of early fetal demise. Fifty-six consecutive women were studied prospectively. The mean (SD) gestation at diagnosis was 9.6 weeks (1.84). Four women had complete miscarriage with mifepristone alone. The overall success rate was 83.9% and the median induction-miscarriage interval was 8.19 hours (range 0.83 to 37.50 hours). Of those women who had a successful outcome, 91.5% were satisfied with the regimen. Sublingual misoprostol in combination with mifepristone is an effective and safe altemative to vaginal or oral misoprostol in the management of early fetal demise.
