Abstract
A 31-year-old woman, gravida 2 para 1, visited our clinic for routine follow-up at 20 weeks' gestation. Although she had no abdominal pain o r pressure, digital vaginal examination revealed dilatation of the int ernal cervical os of 1.5 cm, and transvaginal sonography demonstrated dynamic changes in the shape of the cervical canal. The patient underw ent Shirodkar's operation. Routine postoperative assessment of the cer vix with transvaginal sonography showed dynamic dilatation of the uppe r cervix (above the cerclage), which was accompanied by a sensation of pelvic pressure but no apparent uterine contractions. A healthy male infant weighing 2,980 g was delivered at 38 weeks' gestation. (C) 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
