  Purpose

Amniotic Fluid "Sludge" Does Not Increase Risk of Preterm Delivery in Cerclage Patients.


Condition

Incompetent Cervix
Cerclage
Amniotic Fluid Sludge
Gestation Age at Delivery.

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Official Title: Amniotic Fluid Sludge in Cerclage Patients as an Indicator for Increased Risk of Preterm Delivery and Neonatal Outcome.

Further study details as provided by Center For Maternal Fetal Medicine:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • AF Sludge as a predictor of preterm delivery in cerclage patients [ Time Frame: 7 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Absence of AF Sludge as a predictor of preterm delivery in cerclage patients [ Time Frame: 7 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 177
Study Start Date: January 2008
Study Completion Date: May 2008
Primary Completion Date: March 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
Observational

Detailed Description:

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.
