The latency in preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) can last for weeks. We describe an extremely rare case of hand prolapse with PPROM that was exposed for 23 days before delivery. The patient had spontaneous PPROM of twin A at 21.4 weeks of gestation with shoulder presentation. The right arm of the fetus eventually protruded out the vagina and the hand was exposed for extended period of time of 23 days until delivery. Daily dressing by applying collagen to dry skin and silicone to keep moisture was done to the protruding hand to prevent dehydration and desquamation of the skin...

Congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM) is a developmental malformation of the lower respiratory tract. We report the case of a male newborn diagnosed with cystic lung disease during prenatal ultrasound. A cesarean section was performed at the 32nd gestational week because of premature rupture of the membranes, and soon after the delivery the newborn developed respiratory failure and died. The aim of this study is to report an autopsy case because of its rarity, and to briefly discuss the CPAM subtypes and differential diagnosis of cystic lung diseases of childhood...

The aim of this commentary is to describe changes in women care at an obstetric department that made it possible to reduce the number of beds from 40 to 29. Patient pathways were reviewed and revised using lean methodology. The mean length of stay was reduced from 70 to 59 hours and the mean numbers of hospitalizations per woman from 1.26 to 1.20. At the organizational level, we introduced a Family Department, home management of newborns, home monitoring of the women with cardiotocography and blood samples, and intrapartum Group B Streptococcus-PCR...

OBJECTIVE: Premature aging and short telomere lengths of fetal tissues are associated with spontaneous preterm labor (PTL) and preterm premature rupture of membranes (pPROM). Maintenance of telomere length is performed by the enzyme telomerase. Human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) is a subunit of telomerase, and its dysfunction affects telomere shortening. This study assessed whether maternal or fetal genetic variations in the hTERT gene are associated with PTL or pPROM. METHODS: A case (PTL or pPROM) control (term birth) genetic association study was conducted in 654 non-Hispanic white mothers (438 term, 162 PTL, 54 pPROM) and 502 non-Hispanic white newborns (346 term, 116 PTB, 40 pPROM)...

BACKGROUND: The increase in number of cesarean section (CS) operations has resulted in an increase in cases of isthmocele development. The objective of this study is to determine the risk factors for isthmocele development after CS. METHODS: Isthmocele measurements were taken for 404 women with a history of at least one low transverse CS. The following potential risk factors were investigated: patient's age at CS, cause of CS, weeks of gestation at CS, premature rupture of membrane (PROM), phase of labor, type suture (single/double layer), operation time, uterine flexion (anteversion/retroversion), and blood transfusion during operation...

Premature birth lacks a widely accepted classification that unites features of the clinical presentation with placental pathology. To further explore associations between the clinical categories of preterm birth and placental histology, 109 infants with gestational age <34 weeks and birth weight <2000 g were selected and, based on electronic records, were classified into preterm birth categories of preterm labor, prelabor premature rupture of membranes, preeclampsia, indicated preterm birth for maternal factors (other than preeclampsia), indicated preterm birth for fetal factors, and the clinical diagnosis of abruption...

Uterine and placental pathology can be a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the parturient and infant. When presenting alone, placental abruption, uterine rupture, or placenta accreta can result in significant peripartum hemorrhage, requiring aggressive surgical and anesthetic management; however, the presence of multiple concurrent uterine and placental pathologies can result in significant morbidity and mortality. We present the anesthetic management of a parturient who underwent an urgent cesarean delivery for non-reassuring fetal tracing in the setting of chronic hypertension, preterm premature rupture of membranes, and chorioamnionitis who was subsequently found to have placental abruption, uterine rupture, and placenta accreta...

Premature rupture of membranes (PROM) is a common pregnancy complication that frequently results in maternal and perinatal morbidity. The present methods for diagnosing PROM do not satisfy clinical requirements. The present study aimed to examine the proteome profile of amniotic fluid (AF) and maternal plasma, screen unique proteins in AF, and evaluate their diagnostic value for diagnosing PROM. The proteome profiles of AF and maternal plasma were examined via liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry‑based proteomic techniques...

Comprehensive analysis of bacterial DNA enhanced our understanding of the maternal microbiome and its disturbance in preterm birth, although clinical utility of these techniques remains to be determined. We examined whether broad-range polymerase technique is useful for detection of culture-negative intra-amniotic infection (IAI). Pregnant women who underwent amniocentesis for the management of preterm birth with or without the premature rupture of membranes. Bacterial 16S ribosomal DNA in the amniotic fluid was detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using primers for a sequence shared by Ureaplasma, Mycoplasma, and other bacteria...

BACKGROUND: To date, no intervention has proved effective in reducing the spontaneous preterm birth rate in singleton pregnancies following an episode of threatened preterm labor and short cervix remaining. OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to ascertain whether cervical pessaries could be useful in preventing spontaneous preterm birth in women with singleton pregnancies and a short cervix after a threatened preterm labor episode. STUDY DESIGN: This open randomized controlled trial was conducted in 357 pregnant women (between 240 and 336 weeks) who had not delivered 48h after a threatened preterm labor episode and had a short cervix remaining (≤25 mm at 240 -296 weeks; ≤15mm at 300 -336 weeks)...

The prevalence of hepatitis C in pregnancy is as high as 3.6% in large cohorts. The prevalence of hepatitis C acquired by vertical transmission is 0.2% to 0.4% in the United States and Europe. Although screening is not recommended in the absence of certain risk factors, the importance of understanding hepatitis C in pregnancy lies in its association with adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes. There is potential for those infants infected by vertical transmission to develop chronic hepatitis C, cirrhosis or hepatocellular carcinoma...
