Results: Four studies were retrieved having unduplicated data describing amnioinfusion in women who were attempting a trial of labor after previous cesarean section.
Conclusions: The use of amnioinfusion in women with previous cesarean delivery who are undergoing a trial of labor may be a safe procedure, but confirmatory large, controlled prospective studies are needed before definitive recommendations can be made.
Key Words: amnioinfusion, cesarean section, dehiscence, uterine rupture
Amnioinfusion is a proven therapy for intrapartum management of thick meconium.
The use of amnioinfusion in women who have undergone previous cesarean section is less well studied.
They were further selected by abstract to those articles that dealt in total or in part with women undergoing transcervical amnioinfusion who had at least one previous cesarean section.
In an international, randomized, prospective trial of laboring women with thickly stained fluid, there was a 4% rate of moderate or severe meconium aspiration syndrome or death in 985 neonates born after amnioinfusion, compared with a 3% rate in 988 neonates born to women who did not undergo the procedure, said Dr.
Fraser said, adding that the other studies that showed a positive benefit from amnioinfusion were much smaller than his.
The investigators also saw a slight trend toward cesarean delivery in the group that received amnioinfusion (32% versus 29%), Dr.
Regardless of the indication, it's essential to monitor fluid levels when performing amnioinfusion (AI) and to stop immediately if fluid is not leaking back out.
The same investigators later conducted a randomized, controlled trial in which half of 49 patients who received amnioinfusion during the first stage of labor experienced correction of variable decelerations, compared with just 2 of 47 women who did not receive AI (Am.
One group of researchers performed diagnostic amnioinfusions in 61 women with oligohydramnios in the absence of ruptured membranes at a median of 22 weeks' gestation.
