To asses the efectivity of emergency cerclage in the patients with advance cervical dilatation and prolapsed membranes.
The patients who have ≥4 cm cervical dilatation with protruding membranes were included in the study. The patients were divided into two groups. Group I was consisted of the patients who had emergency cerclage procedure and group II was consisted of the patients who denied the operation and expectantly managed. The physical examination, pregnancy outcomes and the complications were compared between the groups. The results of the patients with emergency cerclage were analysed.
21 patients were referred with a ≥4 cm cervical dilatation with protruding membranes 33.3% of women with emergency cerclage were delivered within one week from the admission. One patient, who was a grand multiparous (G6P4A1), was delivered a healthy infant at 40 weeks of gestation. The remaining five patients were delivered between 21 and 24 weeks, but all the infants were died due to extreme prematurity.Two patients (22.2%) developed chorioamnionitis that necessitated long hospitalization (14–21 days). In group II (expectant management) 83,3% of the patients were delivered within the 48 h from the admission. There were no case of chorioamnionitis in group II.
Emergency cervical cerclage is not a rationale option for the patients with an advanced cervical dilation (>4 cm) together with protruding membranes in early second trimester because of the short prolongation time and high complication rate.Le texte complet de cet article est disponible en PDF.
