Long term management of preterm labor with MgSO4 in myomatous uterus|
Ghahiri, Ataollah; Sabahi, Reihane & Ghasemi, Mojdeh
According to the text book of obstetrics and Gynecology, prematurity is
the first cause of perinatal mortality. Therefore postponing delivery will become
mandatory to prevent complications of prematurity. Parental MgSO4 is one of the most
common and the safest medications for this purpose.
We present a primigravida patient with multiple uterine myoma who had
premature labor and received intravenous MgSO4 for 58 days in order to postpone her
delivery while having a cervical dilation of 4-5 cm. The patient underwent C/S at the
gestational age of 34 weeks because of reducing fetal movements and Breech
Because of many side effects of long term management with MgSO4 and
bed rest, this protocol isn't recommended for all patients.
Premature labor, Lyomyoma, MgSO4.
