  • Objective: Preterm birth is the main cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality. A short cervical length on transvaginal ultrasonography predicts preterm birth. Our aim was to estimate by meta-analysis of randomized trials whether cerclage prevents preterm birth in women with a short cervical length. Data Sources: MEDLINE, PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Library were searched with the terms “cerclage,” “cervical cerclage,” “short cervix,” “ultrasound,” and “randomized trial.” We included… CONTINUE READING
