Abstract:   (5951 Views)
The object of the present study was to investigate the effect of membrane stripping at term pregnancy on the duration of pregnancy and labor induction and its complication. Therefore, a randomized trial of membrane stripping at term pregnancy versus vaginal examination alone was performed. In this study 101 patients with 39 completed weeks pregnancy were selected. All the patients, 50 patients(membrane stripping) and 51 patients(vaginal examination alone), were similar in age, parity, Bishop score and birth weight. Also, placenta previa was excluded by sonography in all of them. The obtained results showed that the interval between membrane stripping until delivery was not significantly different from that of control group. Therefore, membrane stripping could not decrease the duration of pregnancy in this study and at the same time did not have any effect on membrane rupture, vaginal bleeding, meconium passage, cesarian delivery and puerperal fever. It can be concluded that membrane stripping does not have any significant effect on the duration of pregnancy and probably prevention of post-term pregnancy, but it is safe and without any significant complications.
