Background: The common cause of prolonged first stage of labour is cervical dystocia. Many a times inspite of good utrine contractions cervix fails to dilate or dilates very slowly. In modern obstetrics the passive concept of watchful expectancy has long been abandoned and replaced by intensive care. Objectives: To study the effect of injection drotaverine hydrochloride in augmentation of first stage of labour. Material and Methods: Study was conducted in Dr. Ulhas Patil Medical College and Hospital Jalgaon, Kh, Maharashtra. Total uncomplicated 140 full term patients were studied, 70 patients with injection drotaverine hydrochloride and 70 controls. In both the groups 35 primigravidas and 35 multigravidas each. Results and Conclusion: Injection Drotaverine Hydrochloride during active phase of labour increases rate of cervical dilatation and decreases duration significantly.
