Costs and resource utilization for the treatment of incomplete abortion in Kenya and Mexico.
In much of the developing world, sharp curettage (SC) is the most commonly used technique for treating incomplete abortion.
The procedure is usually performed in a hospital setting where physicians and operating theatres are available; it often involves light to heavy sedation for pain control and an overnight hospital stay for patient recuperation and monitoring.
This study examined the hypothesis that use of manual vacuum aspiration (MVA)-a variation of vacuum aspiration (VA)-would be less costly than SC and thus be advantageous to healthcare systems with limited resources.
The purpose of the study was to identify and, where possible, to explain the factors that contributed to cost differences between MVA and SC for treatment of incomplete abortion.
