Salting out: experience in 9,000 cases

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A complete method of saline abortion is presented. This method has been well thought out, is physiologically sound, and has been proven safe and reliable. Although the potential for complications has been reduced to a minimum, those specific to the salting out procedure as well as those inherent in any mid trimester labor and delivery cannot be completely eliminated. Therefore, there can be no shortcuts. Salting out must be performed only in a hospital where well trained specialists are available to handle any complications that may occur.
