Abstract

A 28-year-old woman underwent surgical repair of spontaneous ruptured membranes at 17 weeks' gestation. A collagen graft was placed endoscopically over the membrane defect located over the internal os. Membranes reruptured 14 days later, but the patient did not deliver until 30.5 weeks. The infant did well.
