  BACKGROUND: Preterm prelabour rupture of the fetal membranes (PPROM) precedes 30% of preterm births and is a risk factor for early onset neonatal sepsis. As PPROM is strongly associated with ascending vaginal infection, prophylactic antibiotics are widely by: Risk factors for preterm premature rupture of fetal membranes: a multicenter case-control study. Harger JH(1), Hsing AW, Tuomala RE, Gibbs RS, Mead PB, Eschenbach DA, Knox GE, Polk BF. Author information: (1)Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Cited by:   Objective. this study aimed to investigate the incidence of premature rupture of fetal membranes in preterm singleton pregnancies and its association with sociodemographic factors and maternal self-reported genitourinary by: Preterm birth (PTB) represents the main cause of death among newborns and the second cause, after pneumonia, during the first 5 years of live. Prediction of PTB and the associated preterm premature rupture of membranes (P‐PROM) is actually based on the detection of risk factors .

Prelabor rupture of membranes (PROM), previously known as premature rupture of membranes, is breakage of the amniotic sac before the onset of labor. Women usually experience a painless gush or a steady leakage of fluid from the vagina. Complications in the baby may include premature birth, cord compression, and infection. Complications in the mother may include placental abruption and.   Sometimes the membranes break before a woman goes into labor. When the water breaks early, it is called premature rupture of membranes (PROM). Most women will go into labor on their own within 24 hours. If the water breaks before the 37th week of pregnancy, it is called preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM).   The fetal inflammatory response syndrome (FIRS) is a condition whereby the fetus mounts an inflammatory response to intrauterine infection/inflammation. Clinical consequences include preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM), spontaneous preterm delivery, neonatal sepsis, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, and brain and other organ injury. Other risk factors are previous preterm delivery, uterine bleeding in pregnancy, and heavy cigarette smoking during pregnancy. infection in infants born to patients with premature rupture of.

To assess the risk factors for adverse outcomes in attempted vaginal preterm breech deliveries. A retrospective case–control study, including preterm breech deliveries (24 + 0 to 36 + 6 gestational weeks) from to in Finland. The preterm breech fetuses with adverse outcomes born vaginally or by emergency cesarean section were compared with the fetuses without adverse outcomes. Objective: To determine maternal and fetal risk factors associated with the birth of late preterm infants in comparison to those born at term. Methods: A case-control study was carried out in a tertiary center for high-risk pregnancies. For the cases, the study enrolled post-partum mothers and their respective newborns with gestational ages equal or greater than 34 weeks and less than 37 weeks. OBJECTIVE: To examine whether preterm premature rupture of membranes (PROM), intrauterine infection, and oligohydramnios are risk factors for placental abruption. METHODS: Data for this retrospective cohort study were derived from the National Maternal and Infant Health Survey (N = 11,). Association between abruption and these clinical risk factors was expressed as relative risk . 2. Preterm premature rupture of membranes or fetal demise: transport to ER via ambulance or paramedics. 3. Women with signs or symptoms of infection: ambulance or paramedics. 4. Fetal distress: transport to ER via ambulance or paramedics. 5. All other women at term with ruptured membranes may transport themselves to hospital. REFERENCES 1.
