  • OBJECTIVE To develop a model for calculating the patient-specific risk of spontaneous early preterm delivery by combining maternal factors and the transvaginal sonographic measurement of cervical length at 22 + 0 to 24 + 6 weeks, and to compare the detection rate of this method to that achieved from screening by cervical length or maternal characteristics alone. METHODS This was a population-based prospective multicenter study involving 40,995 unselected women with singleton pregnancies… CONTINUE READING
