About one third of preterm births is caused by preterm prelabor rupture of membranes (PPROM), which is a complication that occurs in about 3% to 4.5% of all pregnancies. The objective of this study was to describe subsequent pregnancy outcomes among women who had a history of PPROM at <24 weeks of gestation. The study also evaluated the use of various prophylaxis modalities during preterm birth.
