The aim of this study is to Determine whether cerclage with vaginal progesterone will: 1. Reduce the overall spontaneous preterm birth rate. 2. Prolong pregnancy latency. ...
The Foley catheter is a safe, effective method for cervical ripening. Limited data exists to indicate ideal time of placement for optimal cervical ripening prior to induction. The proposed...
Congenital Muscular Torticollis (CMT) is a postural deformity of head and neck detected at birth or shortly after birth, primarily resulting from unilateral shortening of Sternocleidomasto...
Preterm birth (PTB) complicates 13% of all pregnancies worldwide and is the most important cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality. Women with a twin pregnancy are at increased risk of p...
Although older children and high dislocations may be more likely to require a femoral shortening osteotomy, the ultimate decision about whether or not to shorten a given femur should depen...
Late second trimester dilation and evacuation is a challenging subset of surgical abortion. Among the reasons for this is the degree of cervical dilation required to safely extricate fetal parts. Cerv...
To evaluate and compare the cervical spinal canal (CSC) morphology among healthy people, cervical spondylosis myelopathy (CSM), and latent cervical spondylosis (LCS, people with cervical spine degener...
Cervical Total Disc Arthroplasty (TDA) or cervical artificial disc replacement (C-ADR) is an alternative technique to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) for the treatment of symptomatic de...
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.
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.
The loss of some TELOMERE sequence during DNA REPLICATION of the first several base pairs of a linear DNA molecule; or from DNA DAMAGE. Cells have various mechanisms to restore length (TELOMERE HOMEOSTASIS.) Telomere shortening is involved in the progression of CELL AGING.
The first cervical vertebra.
The segment of the spinal cord within the CERVICAL VERTEBRAE.
