Plasma progesterone, estradiol, and unconjugated estriol concentrations in twin pregnancies: Relation to cervical length and preterm delivery.

The aim was to examine the association between plasma hormone concentrations, cervical length and preterm delivery in twin pregnancies, including the effect of progesterone treatment.

Cervical Length as a Predictor of Preterm Delivery in an Unselected Cohort of Women with Twin Pregnancies.

 To determine the risk of spontaneous preterm delivery (SPTD) associated with transvaginal cervical length (TVCL) in an unselected cohort.

Can myometrial thickness/cervical length ratio predict preterm delivery in singleton pregnancies with threatened preterm labor? A prospective study.

To investigate whether myometrial thickness (MT) to cervical length (CL) ratio could be used in the prediction of preterm birth (PTB) in singleton pregnancies presented with threatened preterm labor (...

Preterm delivery caused by altered microbial environment and HPV infection.

I read the original research article by Jar-Allah et al. with great interest (1). They report changes of cervical cytology and its relationship to the risk of preterm delivery in singleton pregnancie...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.

Variation occurring within a species in the presence or length of DNA fragment generated by a specific endonuclease at a specific site in the genome. Such variations are generated by mutations that create or abolish recognition sites for these enzymes or change the length of the fragment.

A change in the CERVIX UTERI with respect to its readiness to relax. The cervix normally becomes softer, more flexible, more distensible, and shorter in the final weeks of PREGNANCY. These cervical changes can also be chemically induced (LABOR, INDUCED).

Muscular contractions characterized by increase in tension without change in length.

A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
