Antibiotics for preterm rupture of membranes

Published inCochrane database of systematic reviews, no. 8, CD001058
Publication date2010
Abstract

Premature birth carries substantial neonatal morbidity and mortality. Subclinical infection is associated with preterm rupture of membranes (PROM). Prophylactic maternal antibiotic therapy might lessen infectious morbidity and delay labour, but could suppress labour without treating underlying infection.
