Introduction: It is estimated that after premature rupture of membranes (PROM) at term, 60% of all women go into labour within 48 h, 95% within 72 h. Often labour is induced after 24 h because the risk of maternal and neonatal infection rises. The majority of clinicians advise hospital care to allow monitoring and detection of problems. But for low-risk patients who meet strict inclusion criteria, sometimes home management is possible. This study examines the safety and costs of home management. Material and Methods: We included 239 patients with PROM at term, 202 of them with hospital and 37 with home management...

BACKGROUND: Inappropriate activation of T lymphocytes plays an important role in perinatal complications. However, data on T lymphocyte activation markers of preterm infants is scarce. We investigated the association between gender, gestational and postnatal age, preeclampsia (PE), premature rupture of membranes (PROM) as well as prenatal steroid treatment (PS) and the frequency of activated T lymphocyte subsets (HLA-DR+, CD69+, CD25+, CD62L+) and major T lymphocyte subpopulations (CD4, CD8, Th1, Th2, naïve, memory) in peripheral blood during the first postnatal week in preterm infants...

BACKGROUND: Premature rupture of membrane (PROM) is linked to significant maternal prenatal mortalities and morbidity. In Ethiopia, where maternal mortality is still high, the maternal and fetal outcomes in PROM is very important to decrease maternal and child mortality and for better management and prevention of complications. Thus, this study aimed to detect the maternal and fetal outcomes and associated factors in term PROM at Mizan-Aman General Hospital, south-west Ethiopia. METHODS: A retrospective cross sectional study was conducted using data available at Mizan-Aman General Hospital during a period of 3 years (January 2011 to December 2013)...

INTRODUCTION: Based on our population data, the teen pregnancy rate and the prevalence of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) reported during pregnancy are worrisome. STIs appear to pose a threat to pregnancy outcomes including preterm birth (PTB), neonatal low birth weight (NLBW) and premature rupture of membranes (PROM). The objective of this study is to determine the prevalence of STIs in pregnant teens and the association of this variable to adverse pregnancy outcomes. METHODS: We performed a cross sectional study to assess the prevalence of STIs among pregnant teens during a 4-year period at our institution...

Here we report a case of severe septic shock immediately following cesarean section. A pregnant woman with dichorionic diamniotic twins was diagnosed with preterm rupture of membranes (PROM). Ritodrine hydrochloride and betamethasone did not sufficiently relieve abdominal extension; emergency cesarean section was scheduled 4 days later, at 31 week 5 day gestation. The patient did not show any symptoms or laboratory data suggesting infection. Spinal anesthesia was initiated with 2.2 ml of 0.5% bupivacaine hydrochloride and fentanyl 10 μg at L3-4; sensory loss (T3) was confirmed...
