Abstract

Using active expectant management and strict routines it seems possible to minimize the risk for perinatal asphyxia and mortality. The clinician should be aware of the significant association between preterm premature rupture of membranes and the risk for subsequent placental abruption, especially in patients with early midtrimester PROM and history of bleedings before rupture of membranes or bleedings during the latency period.
