Our objective was to compare the effectiveness and safety of atosiban and ritodrine, in pregnancies obtained by intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) undergoing cervical cerclage. Data from a prospective study were compared with those from a retrospective study.

Cervical cerclage was performed 3 h… CONTINUE READING
