"Objectives: The study was undertaken to evaluate maternal and Perinatal outcomes following transcervical intrapartum amnioinfusion in women with moderate to thick meconium stained amniotic fluid.
Methods: A randomized control study was conducted on 200 women with moderate to thick meconium stained amniotic flu-id during labor. Group A (study group) of 100 cases received amnioinfusion. Group B (control group) of 100 cases received standard obstetric care. Fetal heart rate monitoring was done using cardiotocography. The details regarding mode of delivery, Apgar score, Perinatal and maternal complications were noted.
Results: 66% of women were in the age group of 21-25 years. Average cervical dilatation at detection of meconium and detection of meconium to delivery interval was similar in both groups. In the study group, 68% women had normal vaginal delivery as compared to 49% in the control group (p
