Prevention of Preterm Birth Using Cervical Pessary in Pregnant Women With Short Cervix in Twins
Randomized Controlled Trial: Prevention of Preterm Birth Using Cervical Pessary in Pregnant Women With Short Cervix in Twins

Placement of a vaginal pessary reduces significantly the rate of spontaneous preterm birth in pregnant women with twins and a short cervical length at 18-22 weeks scan.

This trial includes pregnant women with twins undergoing routine ultrasound examination at 18.0 to 22.6 weeks of gestation.
