Ethacridine Lactate is a safe abortifacient with about 80% success and hardly any side effects. The incidence of retained pla­centa is 16%. The extra-amniotic injection is a technically simple procedure and can be carried out even between 13-15 weeks of pregnancy when intraamniotic injection is difficult. Its bactericidal properties minimise the danger o f post-abortal infection. It can be used in certain medical conditions like hypertension, bronchial asthma where hypertonic saline and prostaglandin are contraindi­cated.
