Antiemetics for obstetric and gynecological procedures

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

5 Scopus citations


Nausea and vomiting is a troublesome side-effect that occurs more frequently during obstetric and gynecological procedures than during most other surgical procedures. Recent research has focused on the efficacy and safety of new antiemetic medications, primarily 5-hydroxytryptamine subtype 3 receptor antagonists, as well as clinical comparisons of these new drugs with older, established antiemetics. In the current healthcare environment, the cost-effectiveness of available antiemetic therapies has also become increasingly important, and this has been addressed in some of the recent literature.
