Intracervical application of synthetic hydrogel sealant for preterm prelabor rupture of membranes: a case report

Fionnuala Breathnach / Sean Daly / Elizabeth Griffin / Noreen Gleeson


We report a case of prelabor rupture of membranes at 20 weeks' gestation where a hydrogel sealant was applied to the cervical canal in order to maintain an adequate liquor volume in the second trimester. The use of this agent for the purpose of creating a cervical plug has not been reported to date.

Keywords: Intracervical sealants; oligohydramnios; prelabor preterm rupture of membranes
