Olivia Myrick, Sarah Dotters-Katz, Matthew Grace, Tracy Manuck, Kim Boggess, William Goodnight
OBJECTIVE: This study aims to determine if antibiotics given for latency to women with twins and previable preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) affect the duration from membrane rupture to delivery. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of twin pregnancies at a single center from 2000 to 2015 with previable (14 (0/7)-22 (6/7) weeks) PPROM was conducted. Women who were not candidates for expectant management or who elected for immediate delivery were excluded...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Nearly 1% of pregnancies are affected by some type of midtrimester oligohydramnios. Evidence is currently accumulating that suggests the better efficacy of the new therapeutic procedures relative to conventional management. This review summarizes the available evidence. RECENT FINDINGS: The prolongation of the period between the diagnosis of oligohydramnios and delivery following amnioinfusion and amniopatch techniques appears to be strongly associated with the gestational age and whether the situation was based on rupture of the membranes or not...

OBJECTIVES: Previable premature rupture of the membranes (pPROM), occurring before 24WG, is associated with a 25% neonatal survival rate. This terrible prognosis may lead to elective pregnancy termination on parents' request. Therefore, certain diagnosis is essential but remains difficult in about 10% of patients. Bed-side biochemical tests developed to help in diagnosis had never been evaluated in early pregnancies. This study aimed to evaluate and compare the in vitro sensitivity, detection limit, reaction time and consistency of AmniSure detecting placental alpha microglobulin-1 (PAMG-1) and actim PROM detecting Insulin Growth Factor Binding Protein-1 (IGFBP-1) in amniotic fluid between 15 and 20weeks of gestation (WG)...

OBJECTIVE: We reviewed women with previable spontaneous premature rupture of membranes (sPPROM) in whom an amniopatch was performed and compared their pregnancy outcomes with a conservative management group. METHODS: Amniopatch, an amnioinfusion of autologous platelet concentrate followed by cryoprecipitate, was performed in 7 women with sPPROM diagnosed at 17-23 weeks' gestation, including one twin pregnancy. Three patients had incompetent cervices and the other 4 patients had sPPROM without incompetent cervices...

Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) is more prevalent in twin gestations and is major contributor to preterm birth. The management of PPROM in twin pregnancies does not differ significantly from that of singletons. In general, antenatal steroids, latency antibiotics, magnesium sulpfate for neuroprotection, and tocolysis are all potential interventions to consider when PPROM complicates a twin gestation. Certain circumstances, such as PPROM following an invasive procedure, at a previable gestational age, or in a monochorionic gestation, warrant special attention as the implications of PPROM and subsequent recommendations for these twin pregnancies may differ...

The common management in most centers in cases of multiple pregnancies with preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) before 22 weeks of gestation is termination of the pregnancy or the expectant approach. Expectant management of previable PPROM in twin pregnancies results in an increased rate of fetal and neonatal morbidity and mortality of both twins. Selective fetocide of the twin with early midtrimester rupture of membranes may improve the unfavorable pregnancy outcome of the remaining fetus. We report two successful cases of twin pregnancies complicated by extremely PPROM managed by selective fetocide of the affected twin, with an uneventful single pregnancy course and delivery of healthy newborns at 36 weeks of gestation...

The authors retrospectively evaluated maternal and fetal outcomes of 73 consecutive singleton pregnancies complicated by preterm premature rupture of amniotic membranes. When preterm labor occurred and fetuses were at a viable gestational age, pregnant patients were managed aggressively with tocolytic therapy, antenatal corticosteroid injections, and antenatal fetal testing. The mean gestational age at the onset of membrane rupture and delivery was 22.1 weeks and 23.8 weeks, respectively. The latency from membrane rupture to delivery ranged from 0 to 83 days with a mean of 8...

We have gained significant experience in the clinical understanding and treatment of PPROM in the last 5 years. From our work we can conclude that iatrogenic PPROM is not only a different entity etiologically, it is also different than spontaneous PPROM in its clinical behavior and response to therapeutic measures. Our current success rate with the amniopatch allows us to suggest that iatrogenic PPROM should no longer be viewed as a devastating complication of pregnancy. Instead, as other investigators corroborate our successful experience with the amniopatch, this procedure might become standard treatment for this unusual but frustrating complication of prenatal intervention...

Our objective was to identify the maternal and fetal outcome following preterm premature rupture of membranes at a previable gestational age (less than 23 weeks). We conducted a systematic review to identify articles that assessed perinatal and maternal outcome of pregnancies complicated by preterm premature rupture of membranes in early weeks of gestation. Articles available in the electronic database (MEDLINE and EMBASE) from the year 1980 to 1999 were included in the review The subjects were patients with rupture of membranes less than 23 weeks of gestation...
