DINZA CONTRERAS, Daya María et al. Social and economic impact of Caulophyllum in patients with cervical immaturity . MEDISAN [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.11, pp.1508-1514. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross sectional study of 1 994 women, admitted in "Tamara Bunke Bider" Teaching Gynecological and Obstetrical Hospital in Santiago de Cuba was carried out from January, 2011 to December, 2012, with the aim of evaluating the treatment with Caulophyllum in the cervical maturation and to propitiate the spontaneous childbirth before the 42 weeks or the positive response to the induction, as well as the determination of the socioeconomic impact of this method. The inductions and caesarean sections decreased in the case material, at the same time eutocic childbirths were increased, which guaranteed a better quality in the care to these patients, with less expenses of material resources and human capital, as well as with reduction of the hospital costs

Keywords : Caulophyllum; Caesarean section; eutocic childbirth; hospital cost; secondary health care.
