Résumé (français)  :

Abstract (English)  :

Objective: To determine if a policy of early amniotomy resulted in a reduction in mean labour duration when compared to a policy of conservation of the membranes.

Design: A single-centre randomized controlled trial.

Setting: A tertiary care teaching hospital in Alberta, Canada.

Subjects: Ninety-seven term nulliparae in spontaneous labour, baby in cephalic presentation.

Intervention: Early amniotomy versus intent to keep membranes intact.

Main outcome measures:Interval from randomization to delivery, rate of abnormalities of fetal heart rate tracings, cord artery blood pH, Apgar scores.

Results: The mean interval from randomization to delivery was 390.9 (SE 29.1) min in the amniotomy group and 442.9 (SE 34.1) min in the control group (P = 0.251). There were no differences between groups in the occurrence of fetal heart rate tracing abnormalities, nor was there a difference in the proportion of babies with abnormal Apgar scores, or abnormal cord pH (< 7.20).

Conclusion: The results of the study fail to support the long held belief that early amniotomy is an effective method for reducing labour duration.
