Prostaglandin inhibitors may be the preferred choice of tocolytics if hydramnios is suspected in conjunction with preterm labor.
Anaemia (22%), infections (13%), cervical stitch (3%), malpresentations (5%), hydramnios (5%) were implicated risk factors for PROM.
An overextended uterus also increased risk significantly (OR 2.85), whether due to a fetus weighing more than 4,000 g or to hydramnios.
We had similar concerns regarding several maternal medical conditions including eclampsia, hydramnios, hypertension during pregnancy, and uterine bleeding, despite their being strong risk factors for infant birth weight.
Patients with known LMP(last mestrual period), viable singleton pregnancy and in second and third trimester of gestation were included in the study whereas patients havingtwin pregnancy,history of previous IUGR or adverse fetal outcome, coexistent palcental pathology, uterine or adnexal mass, PIH, polyhydramnios or oligo hydramnios, history of immune or non immune hydrops and gestational age of > 40 weeks were excluded from the study.
Hydramnios, preeclampsia, low-lying placenta, abruptio placentae, multifetal gestations, fetal macrosomia, and shoulder dystocia are all associated with APE, as are both pre- and postterm labor.
Other factors include lower socioeconomic status, cigarette smoking, prior cervical conization, prior preterm delivery, uterine distention (e.g., twins, hydramnios), cervical cerclage, and amniocentesis.

Exclusion criteria included patients with medical disorder complicating pregnancy like epilepsy, psychotic illness, patients with previous caesarean section, patients with any other obstetric complications like twin pregnancy, hydramnios, preterm labour and severe PIH, CPD (borderline CPD), those on anti-allergic drug and anti-hypertensives, known glaucoma.
Infection, cervical incompetence, trauma, APH, hydramnios, multiple gestation and coitus in pregnancy contribute to PROM.
Complications were in the form of PIH, PET, eclampsia, anemia, placenta previa, Rh-ve pregnancy, hydramnios, oligohydramnios.
If the weight ratio of acardiac twin to the weight ratio of donor fetus was >70%, the incidence of preterm delivery was 90%, hydramnios was 40%, congestive cardiac failure was 30% and if the ratio was <70% the incidence was 75%, 30%, 10% respectively.
