BACKGROUND This randomized controlled trial compared the diagnostic accuracy of the sonographic assessment of cervical length and clinical digital examination of the cervix in the second trimester regarding the prediction of preterm delivery in a low-risk population. METHODS In total, 282 unselected, asymptomatic women with singleton pregnancy randomly underwent sonographic cervical length measurement (study group, n=138) or clinical digital examination (control group, n=144) in the second… CONTINUE READING
