The impact of digital cervical examination on expectantly managed preterm rupture of membranes
Preterm premature rupture of membranes
is defined as rupture of the membranes before the onset of labor and before 37 completed weeks' gestation; it is most often associated with genital tract infection.
The novel finding observed is that in our cohort of healthy neonates, rupture of membranes
[greater than or equal to]18 h, perinatal distress, or gestational hypertension significantly affected the CRP concentrations during the immediate postnatal period, but at specific ages.
Amnioinfusion in labor induction of term pregnancies with premature rupture of membranes
and low amniotic fluid.
Multiple regression analysis of PCT values observed in the babies at delivery on the mother's PCT and the confounders identified from antepartum and intrapartum data (see Statistical Analysis) revealed that the variables that significantly affected PCT concentrations in the babies at birth were the PCT concentrations in the delivering mothers, maternal GBS colonization, and rupture of membranes
for 18 h or longer.
A recent practice bulletin published by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends a single course of corticosteroid treatment for women with preterm premature rupture of membranes
(PPROM), said Dr.
47) and there is no contraindication to rupture of membranes
(HIV test negative) and no fetal distress, do a sterile rupture of membranes
followed by oxytocin administration 1 hour later, if no adequate contractions by then.
The major indications for induction of labour were hypertension in pregnancy, postdates and prelabour rupture of membranes
Of the 8 affected, there were 2 intrauterine fetal demise, 4 premature rupture of membranes
with 3 deaths and 2 abruptions with fetal death.
In five hospitals, 35% of 26 neonatal cases of early-onset GBS infection had at least one risk factor: prolonged rupture of membranes
, preterm delivery, or intrapartum fever.
Correlation of amniotic fluid glucose concentration and intramniotic infection in patients with preterm labor or premature rupture of membranes
Ultimately, I took the stand and spoke to the issues of premature rupture of membranes
(PROM), prolonged labor, reproductive physiology, breech delivery, parents' rights, and abandonment following a dramatic presentation by Dr.
