The surgical closure of the incompetent cervix uteri with suture material.
Incompetent UTERINE CERVIX is usually diagnosed in the second trimester of PREGNANCY. It is characterized by passive painless cervical dilation in the absence of UTERINE CONTRACTION; BLEEDING; INFECTION; and sometimes with the amniotic sac (AMNIOTIC MEMBRANE) bulging through the partially dilated cervix. Left untreated, this condition may lead to premature pregnancy loss, such as HABITUAL ABORTION.
The neck portion of the UTERUS between the lower isthmus and the VAGINA forming the cervical canal.
Steel wires, often threaded through the skin, soft tissues, and bone, used to fix broken bones. Kirschner wires or apparatus also includes the application of traction to the healing bones through the wires.
Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
Pregnancy in which the mother and/or FETUS are at greater than normal risk of MORBIDITY or MORTALITY. Causes include inadequate PRENATAL CARE, previous obstetrical history (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS), pre-existing maternal disease, pregnancy-induced disease (GESTATIONAL HYPERTENSION), and MULTIPLE PREGNANCY, as well as advanced maternal age above 35.

Cervical Shirodkar cerclage may be the treatment modality of choice for cervical pregnancy. (1/47)

BACKGROUND: Our objective was to evaluate the use of cervical suture in cervical pregnancy. METHODS AND RESULTS: All cases of cervical pregnancy diagnosed and treated in the gynaecological department at the Sheba Medical Center between 1994-2000 were included in the study. Eight such cases were diagnosed. The first four cases were treated medically. The last four cases (the study group) of cervical pregnancy, including one case of heterotopic pregnancy, were treated successfully with placement of Shirodkar cerclage. CONCLUSION: Cervical cerclage may be considered as the treatment of choice in cases of cervical pregnancies. It may be the only therapy in cases of heterotopic pregnancies (intrauterine and cervical pregnancy).  (+info)

Elective cerclage vs. ultrasound-indicated cerclage in high-risk pregnancies. (2/47)

OBJECTIVE: To compare pregnancy outcome after elective vs. ultrasound-indicated cervical cerclage in women at high risk of spontaneous mid-trimester loss or early preterm birth. METHODS: This was a retrospective study comparing two management strategies in women with singleton pregnancies who had at least one previous spontaneous delivery at 16-33 weeks of gestation. One group was managed by the placement of an elective cerclage at 12-16 weeks and the other group had transvaginal ultrasound examinations of the cervix at 12-15+6, 16-19+6, and 20-23+6 weeks and cervical cerclage was carried out if the cervical length was 25 mm or less. RESULTS: A total of 90 patients were examined, including 47 that were managed expectantly and 43 treated by elective cerclage. In the expectantly managed group, 59.6% (28/47) required a cervical cerclage. We excluded from further analysis three patients who were lost to follow-up and three because of fetal death or iatrogenic preterm delivery. Miscarriage or spontaneous delivery before 34 weeks' gestation occurred in 14.6% (6/41) of the elective cerclage group, compared with 20.9% (9/43) in the expectantly managed group (chi2 = 0.219, P = 0.640). CONCLUSION: In women at increased risk of spontaneous mid-trimester or early preterm delivery, a policy of sonographic surveillance followed by cervical cerclage in those with a short cervix reduces the need for surgical intervention without significantly increasing adverse pregnancy outcome.  (+info)

Cervical Incompetence Prevention Randomized Cerclage Trial (CIPRACT): effect of therapeutic cerclage with bed rest vs. bed rest only on cervical length. (3/47)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of therapeutic cerclage and bed rest vs. just bed rest on cervical length and to relate these effects to the risk of preterm delivery. DESIGN: Cervical length was measured in patients at high risk of cervical incompetence. When a cervical length < 25 mm was measured before 27 weeks' gestation, randomization for therapeutic cerclage and bed rest vs. just bed rest was performed. After randomization, cervical length was measured weekly. For statistical analysis, t-test and Fisher's exact tests were used and P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. RESULTS: Nineteen women were randomly allocated to receive a therapeutic cerclage and bed rest and 16 were allocated to receive bed rest only. Mean cervical lengths and mean gestational ages before randomization were comparable between both groups, overall 19.8 mm and 20.7 weeks. Cervical length was measured again at a mean gestation of 22.1 weeks. Mean cervical length (31 mm) was significantly (P < 0.0001) longer after cerclage than after bed rest only (19 mm). A cervical length > or = 25 mm was measured in 22 of the 35 included women, 16 in the cerclage group and six in the bed-rest group (P = 0.006). Of these 22 women, only one delivered before 34 weeks' gestation, which was significantly less frequent than six out of 13 women with a cervical length < 25 mm (P = 0.006). CONCLUSIONS: Therapeutic cerclage with bed rest increases cervical length more often than bed rest alone. A postintervention cervical length > or = 25 mm reduces the risk of preterm delivery in women at high risk of cervical incompetence and a preintervention cervical length < 25 mm.  (+info)

Funneling to the stitch: an informative ultrasonographic finding after cervical cerclage. (4/47)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the utility of ultrasound surveillance after cerclage placement and to propose a rationale for cervical sonography in this setting. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of 53 women undergoing cervical cerclage by a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, regardless of indication, and delivering between January 1999 and April 2001. Transvaginal ultrasonographic assessment of cervical length and the degree of cervical funneling after cerclage were compared to preoperative values and to outcomes including gestational age at delivery. Funneling to the cerclage was defined as membranes prolapsing down the endocervical canal until they reached the plane of the cerclage. RESULTS: Cervical cerclage resulted in a significant increase in cervical length from 2.1 +/- 1.2 cm to 2.9 +/- 0.8 cm after the procedure, P < 0.001; however, this measure was not correlated with gestational age at delivery. Funneling to the level of the cerclage was associated with an earlier gestational age at delivery 31.3 +/- 5.6 weeks vs. 36.8 +/- 2.8 weeks for those cases without this finding, P < 0.001. A statistically significant association between funneling to the cerclage and preterm delivery was identified irrespective of the indication (prophylactic or emergency) for the procedure. When descent of the membranes to the level of the cerclage was noted, it occurred by 28 weeks' gestation in all patients studied. The incidence of premature rupture of the membranes was also significantly greater postcerclage in women with descent of the membranes to the cerclage (52%) compared to those without this finding (9%) P= 0.002. CONCLUSIONS: Funneling to the cerclage is significantly associated with earlier preterm delivery in patients who have undergone cervical cerclage. Serial sonography up to 28 weeks' gestation is useful in identifying patients at higher risk for premature rupture of the membranes and preterm delivery.  (+info)

Clinical outcomes following interval laparoscopic transabdominal cervico-isthmic cerclage placement: case series. (5/47)

The purpose of this report is to describe outcomes following laparoscopic transabdominal cervico-isthmic cerclage placement in cases of cervical incompetence not amenable to a conventional transvaginal procedure. We reviewed records of the first 11 patients at an academic teaching hospital who underwent laparoscopic transabdominal cerclage placement as an interval procedure, using a technique we previously first described. For all patients, the clinical course, including surgical complications and outcome of all subsequent pregnancies, is briefly described. One case was complicated by a small bowel injury secondary to concomitant extensive enterolysis. Otherwise there were no complications. Mean estimated blood loss was <40 ml. To date, 10 patients have conceived a total of 12 pregnancies following the procedure. Two pregnancies resulted in spontaneous losses at 8 weeks gestation, two in deliveries by Caesarean section at 34.5 weeks, and eight in deliveries by elective Caesarean section at 38 weeks or more. Each delivery resulted in the birth of a healthy infant. In conclusion, patients who require a transabdominal cerclage may undergo a laparoscopic interval procedure and achieve outcomes similar to those following placement via laparotomy during pregnancy.  (+info)

Transvaginal sonography and fiberoptic illumination of uterine vessels for abdominal cervicoisthmic cerclage. (6/47)

BACKGROUND: Transabdominal cervicoisthmic cerclage is a procedure carried out to increase the fetal salvage rates in women who are poor candidates for the more usual procedure of transvaginal cerclage or for those with previously failed vaginal procedures. Although several modifications have been applied to the original procedure in an attempt to reduce the morbidity, bleeding arising from trauma to the uterine vessels during suture placement remains problematic. CASE: Our technique involves transilluminating the uterine vessels during placement of the 5-mm-wide Mersilene (Ethicon Inc., Peterborough, Ontario, Canada) tape suture through an avascular space above the junction of the cervix and the uterine isthmus. This obviates the need to dissect or tunnel into the broad ligament. Simultaneous intraoperative transvaginal ultrasonography is used to enhance high suture placement at the isthmus and monitor the fetoplacental unit. We have used this technique in a series of five women with cervical incompetence for seven pregnancies. All but one procedure resulted in live term births. There were no major complications. CONCLUSION: Simultaneous intraoperative ultrasonography and uterine vessel transillumination simplified suture placement during abdominal cerclage, and reduced the amount of dissection and bleeding.  (+info)

Development of a scoring system for predicting the risk of preterm birth in women receiving cervical cerclage. (7/47)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a model for identifying women receiving cervical cerclage at risk for spontaneous preterm birth <32 weeks. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of high-risk patients based on past obstetric history. Our inclusion criteria involved all patients with singleton gestation who received cerclage between 10 and 24 weeks. They were evaluated for the risk factors associated with preterm birth <32 weeks. Risk factors evaluated include: indication for cerclage, gestational age at cerclage placement, cervical length prior to cerclage, timing of cerclage (emergency or elective) and route of cerclage (abdominal or vaginal). Univariable and multivariable analyses were used to determine the risk factors associated with preterm birth. A risk-scoring model was developed for the prediction of preterm birth <32 weeks in women receiving cerclage. RESULTS: We identified 256 women receiving cerclage that met our inclusion criteria. Preterm births <32 weeks occurred in 51 (20%). Multivariable analysis revealed a cervical length <25 mm, a history of cone biopsy and emergency cerclage to be significant risk factors associated with preterm birth <32 weeks. The sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values of the best model for predicting spontaneous preterm birth <32 weeks in women with cerclage are 80%; 96%; 82% and 95%, respectively. CONCLUSION: The presence of a short cervical length, a history of cone biopsy and emergency cerclage were associated with preterm birth <32 weeks. Our model had a high sensitivity for identifying women who may benefit from a closer surveillance.  (+info)

The efficacy of sonographically indicated cerclage in multiple gestations. (8/47)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of sonographically indicated cerclage in multiple gestations with sonographic evidence of short cervical length (CL). METHODS: Between 1996 and 2002, all multiple gestations undergoing serial CL determinations in the second trimester were identified in 2 separate institutions. Cervical lengths were measured sonographically with transvaginal probes (4-8 MHz). Short CL was defined as a closed CL of 2.5 cm or less. When a short CL was identified before 24 weeks, the study group underwent sonographically indicated cerclage via the modified Shirodkar technique; control patients were placed on bed rest without surgical intervention. The primary outcome was incidence of spontaneous preterm birth before 32 weeks. The groups were compared with the Mann-Whitney U test and the Fisher exact test, with a 2-sided P<.05 used to define statistical significance. Odds ratios were calculated, and 95% confidence intervals were reported. RESULTS: A total of 414 sets of twin gestations and 92 sets of triplet gestations were identified. The median gestational age at delivery for twin gestations was 34.0 weeks for patients who received cervical cerclage and 34.4 weeks for patients with short cervix and no cerclage (P=.77). The median gestational age at delivery for triplet gestations was 34.1 weeks for patients who received cervical cerclage and 33.0 weeks for patients with short cervix and no cerclage (P=.21). There was no difference in the rate of spontaneous preterm delivery at fewer than 28, 30, 32, and 34 weeks or in the rate of preterm premature ruptured membranes. CONCLUSIONS: In our study of multiple gestations with short CL, sonographically indicated cerclage was not associated with a lower incidence of spontaneous preterm delivery compared with conservative management.  (+info)

Cervical cerclage, also known as a cervical stitch, is a treatment for cervical incompetence or insufficiency, when the cervix starts to shorten and open too early during a pregnancy causing either a late miscarriage or preterm birth. Usually the treatment is done in the second trimester of pregnancy, for a woman who had either one or more late miscarriages in the past. The word cerclage means hoop in French for a barrel. The treatment consists of a strong suture being inserted into and around the cervix early in the pregnancy, usually between weeks 12 to 14, and then removed towards the end of the pregnancy when the greatest risk of miscarriage has passed. In women with a prior spontaneous preterm birth and who are pregnant with one baby, and have shortening of the cervical length less than 25 mm, a cerclage prevents a preterm birth and reduces death and illness in the baby. There is no evidence that cerclage is effective in a multiple gestation pregnancy for preventing preterm births and ...
The patients were divided into three subgroups for data analysis. Group 1 included patients with history-indicated cerclage, that is, cerclage was performed in women with obstetric or gynaecological risk factors for spontaneous second-trimester loss or preterm delivery. Group 2 were patients with ultrasound-indicated cerclage, that is, cerclage was performed for women with cervical shortening (,2.5 cm) detected by transvaginal ultrasound examination, without exposure of fetal membranes in the vagina. This group comprised women who planned for history-indicated cerclage with preoperative sonographic finding of shortened cervix; had a history of preterm delivery before 37 weeks or second-trimester miscarriage(s) and underwent ultrasound monitoring of cervical length; or were incidentally found to have sonographic cervical shortening. Regular ultrasound examination was not performed for all patients and, if done, the frequency of monitoring was determined individually. Group 3 consisted of patients ...

The first three considerations are addressed in other keywords.. The need for uterine relaxation is dependent on the degree of herniation of fetal membranes which increases the risk of rupture of membranes during cerclage placement. Reduction of fetal membranes can be accomplished through direct action of volatile anesthetics, use of tocolytics, or Trendelenberg positioning all of which may affect choice of anesthestic.. There is little outcomes-based evidence to support the decision between neuraxial and general anesthesia for cerclage. One retrospective study did not find a different in fetal outcomes comparing general and epidural anesthesia (Anaesthesia. 1986 Sep;41(9):900-5.). A small, prospective, randomized controlled trial comparing spinal and general anesthesia for prophylactic Shirdokar cerclage placement found no difference in postoperative plasma oxytocin or uterine activity.. Neuraxial anesthesia (spinal or epidural) should venture to cover both the cervical dermatomes (T10-L1) as ...

Cervical insufficiency is seen in 0.1% - 1% of all pregnancies and classical treatment involves vaginal cerclage. In some conditions, such as an extremely short, deformed or absent cervix, surgery needs to be done by transabdominal approach. We use a simplified technique for laparoscopic transabdominal cerclage compared to the technique described in previous studies. Furthermore, we give a review on the literature published on this subject. We have a case series of 12 patients operated in a non-pregnant state with previously failed vaginal cerclage (n = 4) or in which a vaginal approach appeared to be impossible due to a history of cervical surgery (n = 8). Minor complication of vaginal erosion of the cerclage tape was described in 2 cases. Comparable studies of transabdominal cerclage via laparotomy or laparoscopy could not show any difference in obstetric outcome. Several studies mentioned the advantages of the laparoscopic approach (short hospitalisation, fast recovery, high placement of the suture,)

PURPOSE: The role of cervical cerclage to prevent preterm birth (PTB) remains controversial. The aim of this study was to identify prognostic factors for cerclage failure among singleton pregnant women following prophylactic cerclage (PC). METHODS: A retrospective analysis of PC was performed in a single center. The main outcome measure was cerclage failure, defined by spontaneous early PTB prior to 32 weeks gestation. Age, BMI, history of instrumentation of the uterus, history of second trimester miscarriage, previous conization, positive vaginal swab prior cerclage, gestational age at time of cerclage, CRP 1 week after cerclage and post-cerclage US changes of cervical length were tested as predictive factors ...
HYPOTHESIS No. 5 FiberWire (Arthrex, Naples, FL, USA) cerclage (FWC) and 1.25-mm stainless steel wire cerclage (SSWC) are biomechanically similar in resistance to prosthetic subsidence in shoulder arthroplasty. METHODS In this laboratory bench study, 3 different surgical knot configurations (4-throw knot, cow hitch, and simple hitch) using a No. 5 FWC were evaluated and compared with a 1.25-mm SSWC. First, distraction tests were performed using bovine femoral cortical half shells mounted on a testing jig. Cerclage tightening, load to a 3-mm gap opening, and load to total failure were measured. Second, uncemented humeral prosthetic stems were inserted into an experimentally split humeral medullary canal, secured by the cerclage. After 100 N of preloading, the prosthesis was advanced into the humerus at a speed of 0.2 mm/s, and resistance during subsidence up to a penetration depth of 10 mm, as well as gap opening, was measured. RESULTS Tightening force showed higher values for SSWC (618 N) than ...

Twin pregnancies are at an increased risk of early delivery. One of the reasons for this may be due to a weakened neck of the womb (cervix). There are 2 main ways to manage a weakened cervix in pregnancy. One option is to do nothing (conservative approach). The other is to strengthen the cervix with a stitch (cerclage) to provide extra support. There is no good quality convincing evidence to suggest which of these has better outcomes for mum and babies in twin pregnancies. This trial aims to determine whether securing the weakened cervix with a cerclage will help to prolong the pregnancy and prevent early delivery. Babies who are born early experience multiple complications including lung, brain and learning difficulties. Therefore, the study will also aim to determine whether prolonging the pregnancy by inserting the cerclage reduces the number of babies affected by these problems. In order to carry out a fair study we aim to perform what is known as a randomised controlled trial. We will ...
What are we talking about when we say cerclage - What are we talking about when we say cerclage? Cervical pursestring. Cerclage is a purse string type suture around the cervix to keep it closed for patients who lose repeated pregnancies due to a inappropriately opening or incompetent cervix.
Daily vaginal progesterone initiated at 16 weeks was a reasonable alternative to weekly 17-alpha-hydroxy-progesterone caproate (17-OHPC) for the prevention of spontaneous preterm birth in women with singleton gestations and prior spontaneous preterm birth, a systematic review in Obstetrics & Gynecology reported.
Cervix: I also have cervical stenosis as very little normal cervix was remaining and it was a bitch to dilate. This was already assumed for awhile. My cervix is scarring over and the opening is very narrow. This is why cramps are so painful to me and my HSG was a trip from hell. Its complements of my LEEP in 2005 and 2009, but mainly the second one. Its a rare risk of having a LEEP done but of course my body loves to be rare. I forgot to ask Dr. H about the possibility of having an cervical cerclage put in if I do get PG. The actual thought of having my cervix stitched closed terrifies me so we will put that thought off for awhile. FYI a cervical cerclage is used in women that have a incompetence. The cervix begin to dilate way before it should, maybe times due to the weight of the growing baby. It results in miscarriage or early labor. The cervix is stitched closed around 14 weeks and the stitches are removed around 37 weeks. ...

3 months EGA; 6.6% of desired pregnancies, 14.5% of mistimed or unwanted pregnancies in 2002),3 placenta previa (2.8 cases per 1000 singletons, 3.9 cases per 1000 twin pregnancies),4 poly- or oligohydramnios, the presence of a cerclage, or the anticipated need for Cesarean section. A cerclage is a stitch that holds the cervix closed. It is commonly placed in a woman who has a weak (incompetent) cervix that tends to dilate. The stitch works to hold the cervix closed, thus keeping dilation from occurring and preserving the pregnancy. Cervical cerclage is temporary and is removed before delivery of the infant. If labor progresses with it present, the stitch can cause cervical lacerations and hemorrhage. Rarely, a transabdominal cerclage is placed-this is permanent and all infants must be delivered via C-section. The cesarean delivery rate in 2009 was 32.3% of all births. Half of the women aged 40 and older (49.5%) delivered by cesarean compared with less than one in four women under age 20 ...
Women with multifetal gestation face numerous risks in excess of those faced by women with singleton gestation. Preterm birth is by far the most common and the most significant of these problems, yet no intervention or approach has served to reduce this risk. The prevalence of preterm birth has risen dramatically in recent years, in large part due to Assisted Reproductive Technologies. Consequently, the problem of preterm birth has assumed an even greater role in contributing to perinatal morbidity and mortality. The recently completed trial by the NICHD sponsored Maternal Fetal Medicine Units (MFMU) Network has, for the first time, demonstrated a treatment (i.e. progesterone therapy) that substantially reduces the rate of preterm birth in women at high risk for preterm delivery because of a prior spontaneous preterm birth . Preterm birth was reduced by 35% among progesterone-treated women when compared with women receiving placebo. Given this dramatic benefit and the extremely high risk of ...
Cerclage?: Anyone else here end up having a cerclage done (cervical stitch) I lost my first little girl at 22 weeks I went into preterm labour. This time I went for a routine ultrasound (well routine for me since I have had them every 2-3wks this whole pregnancy) And my cervix had started to shorten.... Was admitted for 4 days stitch put in.... Now Im on VERY light duty.... ...
Severe vision-impairing ocular inflammation is rarely reported following extensive laser. Previous cases have involved retinal photocoagulation for diabetic retinopathy resolving over days. This report documents a rare instance of this where encircling retinopexy/cerclage was done as fellow eye retinal detachment prophylaxis in a patient with no overt comorbidities. A panuveitis-like reaction with severe, near-total visual impairment was documented 1 day following single-sitting encircling laser retinopexy/cerclage done as fellow eye prophylaxis for a 21-year-old male presenting with total retinal detachment in the other eye. Pre-laser findings were unremarkable, other than an equatorial ring of fine vitreous condensations. Pre-laser vision of 20/20 uncorrected decreased to hand motion, light perception on all quadrants, accompanied by severe anterior segment inflammation with hypopyon, retrolental membranes, vitreous cells, and choroidal effusion/suspicious exudative retinal detachment on B-scan

OBJECTIVE-Genital tract infection accounts for ~ 25-40% of all pre-term births. We sought to assess the relationship between preterm birth and selected vaginal bacterial taxa associated with preterm birth either directly or through their association with bacterial vaginosis (BV). STUDY DESIGN-Vaginal fluid for Gram stain was collected between 17 and 22 weeks gestation as part of a randomized trial of ultrasound-indicated cerclage for preterm birth prevention in women at high risk for recurrent spontaneous preterm birth. Bacterial DNA was extracted from the Gram stain slides and analyzed using quantitative PCR. RESULTS-Among the 499 participants, Mycoplasma was positively correlated with increased risk of preterm (RR = 1.83; 95% CI: 1.52,2.22) as was Mobiluncus (RR=1.36; 95% CI: 1.07, 1.73) and Atopobium (RR=1.44; 95% CI: 1.1, 1.87). However, there were strong interactions between race/ethnic group and the presence of these and other individual taxa on risk of preterm birth. By contrast, BVAB3 ...

FiberTape Cerclage is a tape made of pint polyethylene (UHMWPE) and polyester thread. This is a great alternative for fixing circular fractures.
Sometimes, a womans cervix - the lowest end of the uterus - may be weak to carry a pregnancy through because it opens up easily leading to a miscarriage. Cervical cerclage is a surgical procedure in which sutures or synthetic tape is used to reinforce the cervix especially in women with a short cervix. This purpose is to increase the mechanical strength of the cervix, thereby preventing passive dilatation and premature delivery.. Why choose Manipal Hospitals ...
It was also discussed by the doctors to do a cervical cerclage, basically put a stitch in to help keep the baby in longer. But because I am not below a 2, the doctors are leaving it up to us to make the decision to have the stitch or not.

I walked into the OR to see an entire table set up with scary looking silver things - probes and scalpels and who knows what, all lined up. Deep breath. Okay, another deep breath. The anesthesiologist was incredible and gave me my spinal with almost no pain whatsoever - what a drastic difference from my cerclage placement! I had a minor freak out that I wasnt actually numb yet before I was assured that if, in fact, I was not numb, I would not be lying still on the table. Oh, I guess things had started. It seemed like forever, with lots of tugging and pulling, before Andrew was able to stand up to watch Hannah come out. It took a few seconds before I heard it, but there it was: crying. Such a sweet sound. She was crying. The NICU staff showed me her sweet little face before setting her on the warming table to examine her lungs (we had some low fluid levels and no amnio to confirm lung development, though we fully expected things to be good at 37.5 weeks).

In those first 2 incredibly stressful weeks, we ended up back at labor and delivery 3 times. The first time, Laurie woke up at 3 AM about 5 days after the surgery, shaking uncontrollably and hyperventilating. Our doctors were concerned it could have been signs of an infection, but it turned out to just be a completely understandable panic attack as the emotions and stress of the week came crashing down on Laurie. One of the nurses at labor and delivery told Laurie she needed to just get over it during that visit. A few days later, our OB was concerned that the antibiotic regimen used after the cerclage was placed had given Laurie C Difficile, but once again it was a false alarm as the tests were negative (though we also were given incorrect instructions on how to collect the stool sample for testing, and Laurie ended up having to do that multiple times). Finally, exactly 2 weeks after the cerclage was placed, Laurie had a suture come out in the toilet when she went to the bathroom. We went ...
I dont remember exactly how it went down (partly because it is the worst part of the whole thing, I think, so I probably blocked it out), but I get stuck with one needle and can feel burning as the anesthesiologist injects what I think is a local anesthetic. Then I get stuck with another needle that hurts worse than the first (not sure how that happens), and Im in that uncomfortable position for several long minutes as it seems like hes trying to find the right spot. I dont remember the spinal taking that long any other time (and Ive had 2 other cerclages AND 2 C-sections), and I really dont know if he was having trouble because he didnt tell me. But it hurt like heck and Im even dealing with a really sore back now because of it. (This is totally a first for me though, so I guess its not common!) ...

Since yesterday I have been feeling a thumping or throbbing on my cervix. It doesnt hurt. Its just a very weird/uncomfortable feeling. I had a cerclage put in two weeks ago.
Yes I heard about that site after I lost my son at 22 weeks. I bought those stickers that say proud parents to an angel and we both put them on our car windows. I also bought pregnancy and infant loss awareness ribbon magnet off of ebay for my car. I found so many sites after I lost my son, because I was in soooo much shock over it. I hope to get pregnant again one day and experience a cerclage. Is is painfull? Do you feel it during your pregnancy?

I just had my 17 week ultrasound and appointment. Everything is going smoothly. I am definitely eager to be off from bed rest, but still have a long way to go. I have been getting ultrasounds every 2 weeks to check my cervix/cerclage as well as the baby. Matt could not make it to my appointment today so we had the ultrasound tech check the sex of the baby and she concealed it in a sealed envelope. When I got home I entrusted the envelope to Steph (our nanny) who agreed to make us a special gender reveal cake. The cake was either to be pink or blue depending on if it is a girl or boy. She baked the cake and iced it in white icing with cute Easter decorations since Easter is right around the corner. I had to wait all day long for Matt to get home from work before we could slice into that cake and find out if we are having a boy or girl. As soon as he got home we called our parents and sisters and sliced in. The cake was PINK, which means we are having a baby girl!!!!! Im so excited and cannot ...

Unfortunately, the way that most women find out that they have a soft or incompetent cervix is to lose a baby. Recently, more OBs have started routinely measuring cervical length at about 20 weeks of pregnancy, so that treatment can be offered if the cervix is shortened. In women with a history of preterm birth, weekly progesterone injections are now offered with subsequent pregnancies, sometimes in addition to cerclage. A prophylactic cerclage is one that is placed before the cervix begins to shorten. The decision to place a cerclage is based on whether a previous premature birth was felt to be due to an incompetent cervix rather than preterm contractions. Progesterone is a better option to reduce contractions. Cerclage may help to give the cervix extra support, but will not prevent contractions. It is our job as OB providers to review your history with you and plan together what the best course of treatment is for you ...

When the cervix is not strong enough to hold the growing fetus it is called cervical incompetence. Your doctor may recommended that you have a cerclage procedure where a strong stitch is placed around the cervix to keep it closed so that the pregnancy can continue until the fetus is grown.

This study must be viewed as an investigation of the possible impact of a population intervention rather than an investigation of changes in individual behaviour. It is possible that unmeasured confounders were responsible for the observed changes. Nevertheless, it is hard to conceive of a factor that could change the population risk of preterm births after the introduction of the different successive smoking bans. We adjusted for many potential confounders both at the individual level, including maternal education and national origin, and at the population level, including potential short term changes in air pollution and influenza epidemics.. It is unlikely that our observations could be explained by abrupt changes in therapeutic strategies coinciding with the smoking bans. Nevertheless, we collected data on the prescription of atosiban and on cervical cerclage treatment from a social security organisation covering 42% of the population. Atosiban is an inhibitor of oxytocin and vasopressin ...

Objective: To test the hypothesis that women screened for psychosocial factors, including partner abuse, as recommended by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists would have higher neonatal birth weight, longer gestational age at delivery, higher Apgar scores, and fewer maternal complications. Methods: We evaluated a universal psychosocial screening intervention using a retrospective cohort (n=881 prenatal care patients). Pregnancy outcomes among patients screened beginning in 2008 (n=464) were compared with outcomes among women receiving care before universal screening was implemented (n=417). Data were obtained from medical records between 2007 and 2009. Multivariable logistic regression and analysis of covariance were used to estimate the association between screening and pregnancy outcomes among singleton births adjusting for confounders (prior preterm births, insurance, and mode of delivery). Results: Screened women were less likely than women not universally screened to have low
I would be interested to see the statistics regarding the success rates of emergency cerclages when placed at the first sign of trouble. Emergency cerclages have been reported to have a low success rate. In talking with other women who have incompetent cervix I have found that most who were able to get an emergency cerclage were initially refused a cerclage, did not get a cerclage for many days, or received them after the cervix was open, often with membranes protruding into the vagina. Preventative cerclages have much higher success rates because they are placed before changes in the cervix occur. I believe that if doctors could catch cases of incompetent cervix during the period prior to the cervix actually opening, that emergency cerclages might be just as effective as preventative cerclages ...
Preterm birth does not have a single identifiable cause, but it has been associated with a number of factors. In 2006, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) published one of the most comprehensive reviews of preterm birth ever compiled. It identified prior preterm birth, incompetent cervix, multiple gestation pregnancy, infection, and smoking as some of the factors associated with preterm birth.
The high rate of preterm delivery in the United States is the greatest contributor to the relatively high infant mortality rate in this country. Despite much effort, no effective method exists for prevention of preterm delivery. Progesterone has been studied as a prophylactic agent for preterm delivery with conflicting results. A meta-analysis of older trials using only 17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone (17P) showed a significant protective effect. Meis and colleagues designed a multicenter modern retrial of 17P for prevention of pre-term delivery.. The authors screened patients for enrollment by reviewing prenatal charts of pregnancies at 15 to 20 weeks of gestation for a history of preterm delivery. Initial screening identified 2,980 women, of whom 1,039 were eligible after exclusion criteria, which included lack of documentation for prior preterm delivery, ultrasound dating of more than 20 weeks gestation, planned cerclage, multifetal pregnancy, or prior progesterone use during the current ...

1 in 8 babies are born prematurely. The March of Dimes website says in 40% of those pregnancies, the cause is unknown. And I find this to be true among other preemie mom friends I have. Many have not gotten clear explanations from their doctors as to why this happened. And if they are like me...they may not dwell on that too much because its hard to think about that. Its hard to think about what could have been done to make things different- if anything. For me, I was told I have an incompetent cervix. So, the pressure of 2 babies was too much for my cervix. And thats not something anyone could tell me until I got pregnant and tried to have a baby. I asked my doctor if this would have happened if I had had just one baby. She said yes, but later in the pregnancy. So, in the future, I would get a cerclage (stitch to hold the cervix closed) and progesterone shots to prevent preterm labor. My cervix started thinning and that triggered contractions and labor. I was dilated to a 2 when I checked ...
