Prophylactic anticoagulation for preterm premature rupture of membranes: a decision analysis.
The objective of this study was to determine the optimal modality for venous thromboembolism prophylaxis during hospitalization for preterm premature rupture of membranes using a decision analysis model. The investigators concluded that their results did not support the routine use of prophylactic anticoagulation in women admitted to the hospital for preterm premature rupture of membranes.
