Time Perspective: Retrospective
|Official Title:||Amniotic Fluid Sludge in Cerclage Patients as an Indicator for Increased Risk of Preterm Delivery and Neonatal Outcome.|
- AF Sludge as a predictor of preterm delivery in cerclage patients [ Time Frame: 7 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Absence of AF Sludge as a predictor of preterm delivery in cerclage patients [ Time Frame: 7 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||January 2008|
|Study Completion Date:||May 2008|
|Primary Completion Date:||March 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
177 patients were selected from a data base of 1890. 60 patients had sludge, 117 did not have sludge. Conclusion AF sludge on ultrasound had no association with increased risk of preterm delivery in patients with cerclage.
