OBJECTIVES To integrate data on the performance of cervical length measurement for the prediction of preterm birth in symptomatic women. METHODS MEDLINE, SCOPUS and manual searches for studies with transvaginal ultrasound measurement of the cervical length in symptomatic women were carried out. Random effects models were used for data integration, and pooled test estimates of sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative likelihood ratios (LR+ and LR-) were calculated along with their… CONTINUE READING
