Abstract

Objective: To determine whether a reinforcing cerclage (RC) for a short cervix measured after the primary cerclage procedure prolonged pregnancy. Methods: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of 157 women with singleton gestations who underwent cerclage for standard indications. Women were grouped according to cervical length (CL) at the time of follow-up 1–2 weeks after the initial cerclage placement: ≥25 mm (106 women) and
