Abstract

The role of the cerclage procedure has expanded from its initial application as treatment or prevention of cervical insufficiency to prevention of recurrent spontaneous preterm birth. Although recent prospective studies have clarified the indications for cerclage, additional prospective studies are needed to help define optimal perioperative management. Herein, we review the current data to provide the clinician with the most evidence-based approach to managing patients who require cerclage.
