Clinical chorioamnionitis or intraamniotic infection (IAI) is a disorder characterized by acute inflammation of the membranes and chorion of the placenta, typically due to polymicrobial bacterial infection in women whose membranes have ruptured. It is a common complication of pregnancy associated with potentially serious adverse maternal, fetal. Chorioamnionitis is defined as inflammation of the amniochorionic (fetal) membranes of the placenta, typically in response to microbial invasion (Menon et al 2010). Chorioamnionitis occurs in 1% of livebirths (Monif and Baker 2004).

The standard drug treatment in the mother with chorioamnionitis includes ampicillin and an aminoglycoside (ie, usually gentamicin), although clindamycin may be added for anaerobic pathogens.  Cefazolin may be used instead of ampicillin for mothers with mild penicillin allergy and clindamycin or vancomycin may be used when infected mothers may be.

A Cochrane review found benefits when antibiotics were administered: reduced chorioamnionitis, prolonged latency and improved neonatal outcomes Recommended by NG 25 5 A Cochrane review investigating the role of antibiotics for women with confirmed PPROM found that the use of antibiotics is associated with a statistically significant reduction. Chorioamnionitis is caused by a bacterial infection that usually starts in the mother's urogenital tract (urinary tract). Specifically, the infection can start in the vagina, anus, or rectum and move up into the uterus where the fetus is located.

INTRODUCTION: To evaluate the effect of antibiotic regimens for chorioamnionitis on maternal and neonatal outcomes Preterm birth is a cause of significant morbidity for women and babies, and impacts negatively on women and their families, as well as being costly to the NHS. There is good evidence for the use of progesterone to reduce preterm birth, however studies include women with a combination of risk factors for preterm birth, such as a history of.
Preterm PROM (PPROM) refers to PROM before 37+0 weeks of gestation. It is responsible for, or associated with, approximately one-third of preterm births and is the single most common identifiable factor associated with preterm delivery. The management of PPROM is among the most controversial issues in perinatal medicine Management. Like other forms of sepsis, resuscitation with intravenous fluids and antibiotics are the mainstay of treatment in the emergency department. Vasopressors and blood transfusions are used as needed. The antibiotic regimen selected should cover all potential aerobic and anaerobic pathogens (Table 2) Over a 20-month period we identified several cases of neonatal pneumonia associated with prelabour rupture of membranes (PROM) at term. PROM complicates 8%-10% of all pregnancies, yet 60% of cases occur at term. Ascending infection is a contributing factor and the incidence of chorioamnionitis in these patients is relatively high, especially with prolonged membrane rupture. The signs and.

These antibiotic schedules have not been changed in the updated RCOG guideline . From March 2005 to January 2007 1400 women were recruited to the study, of whom 308 (22.1%) had risk factors.

In the UK a national policy was introduced in 2003 by the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RCOG).3. The RCOG guidelines do not advocate a universal swab-based screening approach on the grounds of the relatively low incidence of GBS infection in the UK and the perceived risks associated with widespread use of antibiotics chorioamnionitis [kor″e-o-am″ne-o-ni´tis] inflammation of the fetal membranes, most commonly due to bacterial or viral infection.
