Preterm labor (PTL) is usually defined as regular contractions accompanied by cervical change at 20–36 6/7 weeks (Chapter 18). Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) is defined as spontaneous membrane rupture at 20–36 6/7 weeks at least one hour prior to onset of contractions (Chapter 19). Many women (50–70%) with apparent PTL stop contracting and go on to deliver at term. Most women with PPROM begin labor spontaneously within several days of membrane rupture, but a small proportion remains undelivered for weeks or months.
In several studies where asymptomatic women undergoing genetic amniocentesis were evaluated for intra-amniotic viral infection using PCR techniques, a number of viral DNAs were identified in the amniotic fluid, but they were generally unrelated to subsequent PTB . Therefore, it seems unlikely that maternal viral infection plays an important role in PTB, but controversy persists . Intrauterine infection is a frequent and important mechanism leading to PTB . Microbiologic studies suggest that intrauterine infection may account for 25–40% of PTB .
