Characteristics of excluded studies [ordered by study ID]

StudyReason for exclusion

De Santis 2003Quasi-randomised study. Participants were admitted by chance into 1 of 2 departments and study treatment was given in only 1 of these departments.

Gonzalez 2001Preliminary results presented on 5th World Congress of Perinatal Medicine - Barcelona, Spain, 23-27 September, 2001, final data are not published to our knowledge.

Gowri 2004The criteria in this trial do not match the criteria for this review. In the trial 3 out of 17 study participants did match the criteria, however, data on their outcomes could not be extracted.

Leake 1983Participants and intervention do not match the criteria for this review.

Nageotte 1985The participants included in this review are women with PPROM between 26 and 35 weeks, intervention is done intrapartum rather than antepartum; this does not fit the criteria for this review.

Puertas 2007Intervention and women do not fit the criteria for this review (intervention: transcervical intrapartum amnioinfusion rather than transabdominal amnioinfusion. Participants were women with PPROM between 27 and 35 weeks).

Singla 2010The participants included in this review are women with PPROM between 26 and 33 + 6 weeks; this does not fit the criteria for this review.

Tranquilli 2005The participants included in this review are women with PPROM between 24 and 33 weeks; this does not fit the criteria for this review.

Vergani 2007This is a proposal for a randomised controlled trial. Final results of this trial have not been published to our knowledge, starting date is not stated. Author is co-author of the ongoing study (Locatelli 2008).

Locatelli 2008

Trial name or titleAmnioinfusion Initiative: open randomized trial comparing perinatal outcome following expectant management versus amnioinfusion in PPROM < 25 wks with persistent oligohydramnios.

MethodsOpen, multicentre randomised trial. Sample size not stated.

ParticipantsInclusion criteria: single pregnancy, early spontaneous PPROM < 24.3 weeks, oligohydramnios (deepest vertical pocket < 2 cm) for at least 4 days and no longer than 15 days at enrolment.

InterventionsSerial amnioinfusions.

OutcomesPrimary outcome: survival till discharge from the neonatal intensive care unit. Secondary outcomes: latency time from PPROM to delivery, gestational age at birth, indication for delivery, number of days of ventilatory support, serious neurologic morbidity, neonatal sepsis prevalence, need for oxygen at 36 weeks post-conception.

Starting dateSeptember 2008.
