Abstract: Nine consecutive multichorionic multiple gestations with early second-trimester (less than or equal to 20 weeks) preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM) of the lower gestational sac were managed expectantly. Mean gestational age at PPROM was 17.5 weeks (13-20 weeks), and the mean PPROM delivery time interval was 6.2 weeks (0-11 weeks). A fetal loss of 63% (12 of 19), and a subsequent neonatal loss of 57% (4 of 7) were observed. Of the four pregnancies evolving beyond 25 weeks, three delivered before 30 weeks. The baby take-home rate was 16% (3 of 19). Histologic evidence of chorioamnionitis was present in 5 of 7 (71%) investigated pregnancies.
