OBJECTIVE We compared the diagnostic performances of fetal fibronectin assay of cervical and vaginal secretions and of transvaginal ultrasonographic evaluation of the uterine cervix in the prediction of preterm delivery of patients presenting with preterm labor and intact membranes. STUDY DESIGN One hundred eight patients admitted to the hospital for preterm labor and with intact membranes underwent assay of fibronectin in the cervical and vaginal secretions and transvaginal ultrasonographic… CONTINUE READING
