Transabdominal Cervical Cerclage (TAC) for the prevention of miscarriage

Record ID 32013000842
Authors' recomendations: Cervical incompetence is painless dilation of the cervix without uterine contractions. The diagnosis is based on a history of second- or early third-trimester pregnancy loss or preterm birth following painless cervical dilation. Approximately 0.1% to 1.0% of pregnancies are complicated by cervical incompetence. Cervical incompetence frequently recurs, and early or prophylactic treatment is commonly undertaken in women with a known or suspected history of the disorder. Cervical incompetence is frequently idiopathic, but also may be associated with surgery, trauma to the cervix, or intrauterine exposure to diethylstilbestrol.
