OBJECTIVE To establish the relationship between cervical length at 23 weeks' gestation in twin pregnancies and risk of spontaneous preterm delivery. METHODS Cervical length was measured during routine antenatal care by transvaginal sonography at 23 (range 22-24) weeks' gestation in 215 twin pregnancies. Distribution of cervical length was determined, and sensitivity and false-positive rate for spontaneous preterm delivery at or before 28, 30, 32, and 34 weeks for cutoff cervical lengths of 15… CONTINUE READING
