the rupture of the amniotic sac occur more than an hour before onset of labor is called premature rupture of the membrane.premature rupture of the membrane is preterm when its occur before 37 week of gestation
PPROM is an acronym for Preterm Premature Rupture of Membranes. To explain it, we should break it apart: * Rupture of membranes (ROM) is the normal breaking of the amniotic membranes that occurs during labor. Most people call this "breaking their water." * Premature rupture of membranes (PROM) occurs when the amniotic membranes are ruptured (water breaks) before actual labor has started. Sometimes, physicians may rupture membranes prematurely in an attempt to induce or augment the labor process. PROM indicates this was not an intentional ROM * Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) indicates that there is premature rupture of membranes before the child has been carried to term (> 36 weeks gestation).

Premature rupture of membranes occurs when the amniotic sac is torn, causing the amniotic fluid to leak out.
Once the membranes rupture it is not safe to stop labor because the amniotic fluid is what keeps the baby safe and when the membranes rupture it can start allowing bacteria in to the baby
PROM occurs in about 10% of all pregnancies. Only about 20% of these cases are preterm PROM. Preterm PROM is responsible for about 34% of all premature births.
Chlamydia can cause premature rupture of membranes and preterm labor, both of which increase the risk of cerebral palsy.
Preterm birth is the leading cause of neonatal morbidity. Preterm birth can be caused by premature rupture of the membranes, strep b infections, smoking, and a variety of other causes.

Bacterial vaginosis is associated with increased risk of preterm labor or rupture of the membranes. It is not known to have any other direct effects to the fetus.
An amniohook is used by physician to rupture membranes. AKA artificial rupture of membranes.
I would think that "water breaking" would fall into that category. Often in medicine it is referred to as 'Rupture of membranes' or ROM. If it is done by the doctor or midwife rather than Spontaneously (SROM), it is called artificial rupture of membranes or AROM.
Unclear. Some risk factors are smoking, multiple pregnancies, excess amniotic fluid (polyhydramnios), amniocentesis, cervical cerclage.
Endoscopic fetoscopy has the potential for causing infection in the fetus and/or mother; premature rupture of the amniotic membranes; premature labor; and fetal death.
No that is the fluid the fetus has lived in all these months. It's not induced but has always been there. The rupture of membranes ("water breaks") which releases the amniotic fluid occurs at delivery naturally, caused by the labor process, or it can be artificially ruptured by your health care professional to start labor. In the case of the latter, you may hear it said that delivery was "induced" by artificial rupture of membranes.
BV is not normal during pregnancy, but it is common. Bacterial vaginosis is associated with increase risk of premature rupture of the membranes and preterm labor, so treatment is important.
Bacterial vaginosis can increase the risk of preterm labor or premature rupture of the membranes. If you have an abnormal vaginal discharge when pregnant, contact your health care provider right away.
You can have what is called a membrane sweep, or, better yet, have a few of them and that should help rupture your membranes and amniotic fluid will gush out sooner than if you had nothing done.
A previous preterm delivery, previous trauma to the cervix, early rupture of membranes, hormonal influences, abnormalities of the cervix or uterus, exposure as a fetus to diethylstilbestrol.
diagram of pathophysiology of premature rupture of membranes
Symptoms of preterm labor can include all or some of the following: period-like cramps, contractions that intensify and become more frequent, back pressure, unusual pressure in your pelvis, bloody discharge, rupture of membranes, changes in cervix as measured by an ultrasound. *Information obtained from What to Expect when your Expecting.
The doctor must decide either to try to prevent labor until the fetus is more mature, or to induce labor and prepare to treat the complications. If infection is present the baby will need to be delivered.
I think you might mean pPROM, which is rupture of the amniotic sac of a fetus that is not term.
A pelvic exam can determine if amniotic fluid is leaking. The fluid when placed on nitrazine paper turns dark blue. Smearing some fluid on a slide will look feathery under the microscope.
An amniotomy is an artificial rupture of membranes to induce or accelerate labour.
