Researchers at Yale School of Medicine have found that excessive formation of calcium crystal deposits in the amniotic fluid may be a reason why some pregnant women suffer preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM) leading to preterm delivery. This is a key breakthrough in solving the mystery of preterm birth, a leading cause of death and permanent disability in newborns. The findings will be presented in an abstract at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine Scientific Sessions on...

By Getahun, Darios Ananth, Cande V; Oyelese, Yinka; Peltier, Morgan R; Et al Abstract Objective. To examine whether acute and chronic respiratory diseases are associated with an increased risk of spontaneous premature rupture of the membranes (PROM). Methods. We used the 1993-2004 National Hospital Discharge Survey data of singleton deliveries in the USA (N = 41 250 539). The International Classification of Diseases Ninth Revision was utilized to identify acute (acute upper respiratory...

By Skrablin, Snjezana; Lovric, Helena; Banovic, Vladimir; Kralik, Saska; Et al Abstract Objective. To investigate whether maternal serum interleukin-6 (IL-6), interleukin-1/ (IL- 1/i) and high sensitive C-reactive protein (CRP) could be used as markers of tocolysis failure and adverse neonatal outcome in pregnancies with preterm labor (PL). Methods. Forty-seven maternal blood samples taken because of PL at admission and delivery were analyzed. Control samples were taken from 20 gravidas...

When an induction is not performed for emergency or other medical reasons, the method is considered an elective process. The decision to induce labor has increased in recent years due to its convenience or because it easily accommodates busy schedules.
