A dipstick test for infection in preterm premature rupture of the membranes.

Microbiological analysis of amniotic fluid obtained by amniocentesis is increasingly employed in preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM) to predict those patients at increased risk of chorioamnionitis. Although liquor culture appears the most accurate predictor, a role exists for rapid but slightly less accurate testing. In this study, a dipstick… (More)
