Abstract

Objectives: The management of cases of preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM), which is known to cause significant levels of maternal-neonatal morbidity and mortality, is based on induction of birth or monitoring with a conservative approach. PPROM is associated with some complications such as preterm delivery, low APGAR scores, perinatal infections, respiratory distress syndrome and neonatal sepsis.
