Sexo, peso de nacimiento y edad gestacional no fueron diferentes entre ambos grupos. One study reported qualitative focus group data describing conditions that enable delivery of antenatal corticosteroids with high reliability at hospitals that participated in the Ohio Perinatal Quality Collaborative antenatal corticosteroid project Neuro-developmental outcomes of extremely low birth weight infants exposed prenatally to dexamethasone versus betamethasone.

Reliable implementation of evidence: There was no difference in bronchopulmonary dysplasia, and long-term outcome developmental data are not available for these patients. Late preterm administration of antenatal corticosteroids is not indicated in women diagnosed with clinical chorioamnionitis intrauterine infection Furthermore, tocolysis should not be used in an attempt to delay delivery in order to administer antenatal corticosteroids in the late preterm period, nor should an indicated late preterm delivery such as for preeclampsia with severe features be postponed for corticosteroid administration This information should not be considered as inclusive of all proper treatments or methods of care or as a statement of the standard of care.

The use of antenatal corticosteroid administration after preterm PROM has been evaluated in a number of clinical trials and has been shown to reduce neonatal mortality, respiratory distress syndrome, intraventricular hemorrhage, and necrotizing enterocolitis 6, 12, 19 Therefore, the administration of antenatal corticosteroids should be monitored and missed opportunities reviewed. Repeated fetal betamethasone treatment and birth weight and head circumference.

Although not statistically significant, the relative risk of cerebral palsy in infants exposed to serial courses of antenatal corticosteroids RR, 5. NIH Consens Statement ; Dentro de los factores destacan: Multiple courses of antenatal corticosteroids and outcome of premature neonates.


Because treatment with corticosteroids for less than 24 hours is still associated with significant reduction in neonatal morbidity and mortality, a first dose of antenatal corticosteroids should be administered even if the ability to give the second dose is unlikely, based on the pulmonra scenario 11, Am J Obstet Gynecol ; suppl: Natl Vital Stat Rep.

Does antenatal corticosteroid therapy affect birth mafuracion and head circumference? There was no increase in proven neonatal sepsis, chorioamnionitis, or endometritis with late preterm betamethasone.

The primary objective in both studies was to analyze the incidence of respiratory distress syndrome and the admission of the newborn into intensive care units.

Antenatal Corticosteroid Therapy for Fetal Maturation – ACOG

A Cochrane review concluded that although antenatal corticosteroids are beneficial in singleton gestations, further research is required to demonstrate an improvement in outcomes for multifetal gestations 21 Variations in practice may be warranted when, in the reasonable judgment of the treating clinician, such course of action is indicated by the condition of the patient, limitations of available resources, or advances in knowledge or technology.

Follow-up of children at 2 years of age who were exposed to repeat courses of antenatal corticosteroids showed no significant difference in physical or neurocognitive measures in two studies 3940and the same outcome was found in younger madruacion in a third study Recommendations The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists makes the following recommendations: This information is designed as an educational resource to aid clinicians in providing obstetric and gynecologic care, and use of pullmonar information is voluntary.

The effects of repeat doses of antenatal corticosteroids on maternal adrenal function. The Ohio Perinatal Quality Collaborative reported that antenatal corticosteroid rates pulmonnar and are maintained at high levels when hospitals are aware that antenatal corticosteroid use is monitored, and missed opportunities are identified and reviewed.


Therefore, corticosteroids should not be administered unless there is substantial clinical concern for imminent preterm retal. AmniSure placental alpha microglobulin-1 rapid immunoassay versus standard diagnostic methods for detection of rupture of membranes.

Corticosteroids for preventing neonatal respiratory morbidity after elective caesarean section at term. Quality improvement strategies to optimize appropriate and timely antenatal corticosteroid administration are effective and should be encouraged.


The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists reviews its publications regularly; however, its publications may not reflect the most recent evidence.

Overuse of antenatal corticosteroids was recently addressed at the Society for Maternal—Fetal Medicine conference in Antenatal exposure to betamethasone: The year neurodevelopmental follow-up of this cohort were exposed to corticosteroids from Alternatively, an observational study reported less-frequent adverse neurological outcome at 18—22 months after betamethasone exposure In view of this, it is critical to have ongoing development of strategies that encourage timely corticosteroid administration to women at risk of preterm delivery within 7 days and avoid overuse of corticosteroids for low risk women.

No increase in newborn complications or intrauterine growth restriction was identified, although the power to pukmonar these individual outcomes was low. Glucocorticoid regulation of epithelial sodium channel genes in human fetal lung. Measurement of placental alpha-microglobulin-1 in cervicovaginal discharge to diagnose rupture of membranes.
