Relationship between fetal pulmonary maturity assessment and neonatal outcome in premature rupture of the membranes at 32-34 weeks' gestation.

The absence of fetal pulmonary maturity in patients with preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM) is often considered an indication for conservative management. The purpose of this study was to examine the value of biochemical pulmonary maturity assessment for the prediction of neonatal outcome in patients with PPROM between 32 and 34 weeks… CONTINUE READING
