OBJECTIVES To develop a model for the prediction of short cervix ( ≤ 15 mm) at 20-24 weeks by combining maternal history and transvaginal ultrasonographic measurement of cervical length at 11-14 weeks. To explore the value of an additional ultrasound examination of the cervix at about 17 weeks. METHODS Longitudinal prospective study in 800 unselected pregnant women presenting for first-trimester ultrasound assessment by nuchal translucency and serum biochemistry. Cervical length was evaluated… CONTINUE READING
