Study Summary

This trial is testing whether adding misoprostol to vasopressin decreases blood loss, compared to vasopressin alone. The study will be double-blinded, meaning neither the patient nor researcher will know who gets the placebo or misoprostol. Outcomes such as decreased hemoglobin and hematocrit, transfusion need, and operative time will be measured to see if misoprostol makes a significant difference. Patients will also be monitored for any side effects from misoprostol.
