Conservative Management of Prelabour Rupture of Membrances at Term Abstract

KS WONG, Lowina HY TSE, Lawrence CH TANG

In this clinical audit of conservative management of prelabour rupture of membranes at term pregnancy, a total of 264 women was inclued in the study. Seventy-three percent of women had spontaneous labour within 24 hours. The overall Caesarean section rate was 8.3%. The rates of maternal infection and serious neonatal infection were 3% and 1.1% respectively. In our experience, in healthy women with term pregnancy, 24 hours expectant management is a safe policy.
