[Correspondence] Expectant management in pregnancies with ruptured membranes – Authors’ reply

We share Ioan Milosevic and colleagues’ concern about the importance of avoiding selective reporting of trial outcomes and regret not explaining the changes they noted and the reasons for them in our Article.1 Nevertheless, we can reassure readers that our analyses were not data driven. The analysis plan2 used in the paper provides a comprehensive list of primary and secondary outcomes. The plan was completed and published before data lock and unblinding of treatment allocation. Readers can check our published tables against the dummy tables in the analysis plan, and will see that all reported outcomes were prespecified there.
