General principles — women in the early phases of acute preterm labor, when cervical dilation is not advanced, are optimum candidates for tocolytic therapy tocolysis is indicated when the overall benefits of delaying delivery outweigh the risks.
Women with preterm labour that is arrested with tocolytic therapy are at increased risk of recurrent preterm labour the efficacy of maintenance tocolytic therapy after successful arrest of. Preterm birth, is defined by the world health organisation as birth prior to 37 completed weeks of gestation,1 and continues to provide an enormous challenge in the delivery of perinatal health care, estimated to affect approximately 13 million births annually worldwide2 the incidence of preterm birth is variably reported between 5% and 11% of.
