Utus paste was used to induce abortion in 83 women. It was successful in all but two. Pain was a prominent symptom in many cases. Complications included three cases of septicaemia and one of perforation of the uterus leading to death. This experience shows the complications of abortion induced by Utus paste to be too serious to justify its further use.
