Baumgarten, Advantages and disadvantages of low amniotomy J. Perina t. Med. 4(1976) 3 Advantages and disadvantages of low amniotomy K. Baiungarten Department of Perinatology at the University of Vienna (II. Dept. for Obstetrics and Gynecology) If MUNROE  is correct the importance of ruptured membranes for induction of labor is being discussed since 100 b.c. when SORANUS  first indicated such a technique to enhance labor. At the beginning of the second half of this Century low amniotomy was commonly accepted äs a safe method to induce and enhance labor (KREIS , HUSSLEIN [10,11], BAUM GARTEN [4, 5]). In 1972 CALDEYRO-BARCIA and his group [8,16, 17] published their results of a study on biochemical, anatomical, and cardiotocographic fmdings in fetuses born after early or late rupturing membranes respectively. In this paper it is stated that 1. numbers of type I dips occurred more frequently in the group with early ruptured membranes, 2. cephalic bone disalignment is more frequently being found in this group, and 3. compression of umbilical cord can more often be found and easier achieved under these conditions. They state verbally: "With membranes intact the fetus is less influenced by uterine contractions". Curriculum vitae Dr. BAUMGARTEN,
