Premature rupture of membranes refers to the rupture of the fetal membranes prior to the onset of labor. Premature rupture of membranes is associated with a number of neonatal and maternal...
Two groups will be recruited. The first group are pregnant ladies that have unequivocal rupture of fetal membranes that is diagnosed by seeing the amniotic fluid leakage in the vagina. The...
The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of using intracervical balloon catheters for cervical ripening as part of labour induction in healthy, GBS-negative women with prela...
Two-year multicentre randomized controlled parallel trial to compare intentional delivery and conservative management in pregnant women with preterm and prelabour rupture of membranes bet...
The aim of the study is to demonstrate substantial equivalence of IGFBP-1/AFP tests with the "predicate device" Amnisure® in detecting pre labor rupture of membranes. 4 test kits are comp...
Most clinical guidelines state that with early preterm premature rupture of membranes, obstetric and pediatric teams must share a realistic and individualized appraisal of neonatal outcomes with paren...
Artificial ligaments have been developed and used in the treatment of ligamentous injuries since the 1970s. The early generation of artificial ligaments showed promising short-term results but resulte...
To quantify the potential cost savings if azithromycin is substituted for erythromycin in women with preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM).
To identify factors associated with previable delivery in second trimester preterm rupture of membranes (PROM).
Preterm premature rupture of membranes occurs in around 3% of pregnancies, and several aspects related to its management are still controversial. The objective of this update is to provide a detailed ...
Artificially produced membranes, such as semipermeable membranes used in artificial kidney dialysis (RENAL DIALYSIS), monomolecular and bimolecular membranes used as models to simulate biological CELL MEMBRANES. These membranes are also used in the process of GUIDED TISSUE REGENERATION.
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.
The adherence and merging of cell membranes, intracellular membranes, or artificial membranes to each other or to viruses, parasites, or interstitial particles through a variety of chemical and physical processes.
Chemical agents that increase the permeability of biological or artificial lipid membranes to specific ions. Most ionophores are relatively small organic molecules that act as mobile carriers within membranes or coalesce to form ion permeable channels across membranes. Many are antibiotics, and many act as uncoupling agents by short-circuiting the proton gradient across mitochondrial membranes.
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).
