78 Transabdominal Cervical Cerclage : Laparoscopy or Laparotomy

  title={78 Transabdominal Cervical Cerclage : Laparoscopy or Laparotomy},
  author={Surakshith L. Gowda},
Cervical incompetence is one of the common causes of recurrent pregnancy loss. Transabdominal cervical cerclage is the option where previous vaginal cerclages have failed or in patients with congenital short or absent cervix, a lacerated cervix, severe scarring of the cervix, and multiple deep cervical defects. So this review is aimed to study the effectiveness of laparoscopic cerclage in comparison with cervical cerclage by laparotomy. A literature search was performed using Springer link, BMJ…

Laparoscopic Transabdominal Cerclage
Transabdominal cerclage performed by laparoscopy seems to be a feasible technique in cases transvaginal Cerclage fails or is technically impossible.
Laparoscopic transabdominal cervicoisthmic cerclage during pregnancy.
Laparoscopic cervico-isthmic cerclage: surgical technique and obstetric outcomes.
Clinical outcomes following interval laparoscopic transabdominal cervico-isthmic cerclage placement: case series.
Outcomes following laparoscopic transabdominal cervico-isthmic cerclage placement in cases of cervical incompetence not amenable to a conventional transvaginal procedure are described to achieve outcomes similar to those following placement via laparotomy during pregnancy.
Outcome After Transabdominal Cervicoisthmic Cerclage
In women with a classic history of cervical insufficiency and a traumatized cervix that precludes transvaginal cerclage, transabdominal cervicoisthmic cerclages is associated with successful outcome in the absence of procedure-related major complications.
Experience with three cases of laparoscopic transabdominal cervico‐isthmic cerclage and two subsequent pregnancies
Three women with a history of recurrent miscarriages and failed vaginal cerclages had laparoscopic transabdominal cerclage to avoid a laparotomy, thus, reducing the abdominal wall aggression and the recovery time.
Laparoscopic transabdominal cervical cerclage: A 6‐year experience
A laparoscopic approach to abdominal cerclage offers the potential to reduce the morbidity associated with laparotomy in patients with cervical insufficiency.
