The article discusses research being done the management of prelabor rupture of membranes at term. It references a study by M. E. Hannah et al published in a 1996 issue of "The New England Journal of Medicine." The study design and validity is explained. The study examined whether the risk of neonatal infection is influenced by the method of managing prelabor rupture of fetal membranes at term.
