Correlation Between Premature Rupture of Membranes and Early-onset Neonatal Infections

2017-08-16 16:08:21 | BioPortfolio


This study hypothesizes that early-onset neonatal Infections are related to premature rupture of membrane (PROM) and that early intervention can improve the prognosis of newborns. The objective of this study is to analyze the correlation between PROM and early-onset neonatal infections and to assess the prognosis of newborns. A cohort study is designed to implement the study. The subjects of study group are pregnant women who are diagnosed as PROM or chorioamnionitis and whose gestational age is ≥ 24 weeks. The subjects of control group are pregnant women without PROM and chorioamnionitis. Control group and research group are paired at 1: 1 ratio. The main contents of the study include three aspects. (1) The correlation between PROM and chorioamnionitis. (2) The correlation between PROM and early-onset neonatal infections. (3) The pathogenesis of intrauterine infection and neonatal infection.

Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Spontaneous tearing of the membranes surrounding the FETUS any time before the onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR. Preterm PROM is membrane rupture before 37 weeks of GESTATION.

A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature contractions of the HEART VENTRICLES. It is characterized by the premature QRS complex on ECG that is of abnormal shape and great duration (generally >129 msec). It is the most common form of all cardiac arrhythmias. Premature ventricular complexes have no clinical significance except in concurrence with heart diseases.

Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).

The premature cessation of menses (MENSTRUATION) when the last menstrual period occurs in a woman under the age of 40. It is due to the depletion of OVARIAN FOLLICLES. Premature MENOPAUSE can be caused by diseases; OVARIECTOMY; RADIATION; chemicals; and chromosomal abnormalities.

Disease-related laceration or tearing of tissues of the heart, including the free-wall MYOCARDIUM; HEART SEPTUM; PAPILLARY MUSCLES; CHORDAE TENDINEAE; and any of the HEART VALVES. Pathological rupture usually results from myocardial infarction (HEART RUPTURE, POST-INFARCTION).
