Chorioamnionitis increases neonatal morbidity in pregnancies complicated by preterm premature rupture of membranes
The prevalence of preterm birth with concomitant premature rupture of membranes
is widespread in the inner city community.
01) after birth and positively associated with rupture of membranes
for 18 h or longer (P = 0.
In a separate study, researchers identified three independent predictors of emergent outcomes in patients with preterm premature rupture of membranes
At artificial rupture of membranes
, a small amount of thick meconium was noted.
In contrast, a recent study from New Zealand found an elevated rate of premature rupture of membranes
before 37 weeks in women who had undergone laser conization, especially in cases where a significant amount of tissue was removed (JAMA 291:2100-06, 2004).
Linear regression analyses were used to control for the confounding effects of maternal smoking, maternal age, parity, obesity, prior spontaneous and induced abortion, prior births of infants who were small or large for gestational age, anemia and premature rupture of membranes
All antepartum and intrapartum data were collected prospectively and included maternal age, pre-existent or pregnancy-related diseases, mode of delivery, use of anesthesia, duration of active labor (18), interval between rupture of membranes
and delivery, maternal group B streptococcus (GBS) colonization, intrapartum antimicrobial administration, and abnormalities in intrapartum fetal heart monitoring.
NEW ORLEANS -- Repeat courses of corticosteroids didn't increase the incidence of chorioamnionitis or endometritis in women with preterm premature rupture of membranes
The team also found that the greatest risk factors involved in the preterm rupture of membranes
leading to birth included mild hypertension not requiring treatment, family history of recurrent gestational diabetes, receiving some forms of hormonal fertility treatment and having a body mass index of less than 20.
This will include induction of labour in women with intact membranes and women with spontaneous rupture of membranes
but who are not in labour.
Prelabour rupture of membranes
was diagnosed if liquor was seen draining from the cervical os on sterile speculum or with the fern test.
