USING SONOGRAPHICALLY ESTIMATED MYOMETRIAL THICKNESS IN PREDICTION OF LATENCY INTERVAL IN CASES OF PRETERM PREMATURE RUPTURE OF MEMBRANES (PPROM) A PROSPECTIVE STUDY

Dr. Radhika Parmar

Abstract


INTRODUCTION
Ÿ Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) and preterm
delivery are very challenging obstetric problems.
Ÿ The main problem for an obstetrician in the management of
PPROM is to predict when such a patient is likely to go in labor
especially in cases of expectant management.
Ÿ Expectant management gives us the time for fetal lung maturity
but with a risk of infection to both mother and the baby.
Ÿ If there is some factor which can give us an idea about how long a
pregnancy will continue after PPROM, it can be a boon for
obstetricians to shift the patient to a better neonatal center and
prepare her better psychologically. Hence, in this study, we were
aiming to find out the relation between MT and PPROM and if we
can predict the latency interval depending on them.
