Abstract

Objectives: Our objective was to evaluate two different aspects of the paracervical block (PCB) technique for first trimester surgical abortion, to compare a 3-min wait prior to cervical dilation to no wait and to compare four-site with two-site injection. Study design: We conducted two consecutive randomized, single-blinded noninferiority trials. In the first trial, women
