OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to determine the sequence of events that occur during fetal membrane (FM) rupture and to compare the biophysical properties of intact FM with its separated individual components (amnion and choriodecidua). STUDY DESIGN FM physical properties were determined with computerized, specially adapted, industrial, strength testing equipment and the rupture sequence (in vitro) video documented. Separated individual FM component properties were compared with those of… CONTINUE READING
