Abstract

According to the new protocol of conservative management of preterm rupture of membranes, oligohydramnios, direct fetal intramuscular betamethasone or intra-amniotic fluid surfactant treatment was applied to the transabdominal amnioinfusion for the antenatal prevention of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University Medical School of Pecs. The authors report on their clinical experience with these invasive procedures based on 12 cases. Under continuous ultrasound guidance 8 fetuses were given direct intramuscular betamethasone, whereas prophylactic intra-amniotic fluid surfactant was administered in 4 cases. They strongly believe that ultrasound-guided direct intramuscular steroid or intra-amniotic fluid surfactant treatment of the fetus combined with transabdominal amnioinfusion have great potential for becoming a reliable option for te antenatal prevention of RDS.
