Abstract
The ultimate goal of radical trachelectomy is to have a viable pregnancy. However, extremely short cervix following radical trachelectomy could result in cervical incompetence and nonviable preterm delivery. Although prophylactic cerclage is placed at the time of radical trachelectomy, it might not be sufficient to prolong pregnancy until term. We report a successful term pregnancy after transabdominal cerclage with previous second trimester loss following vaginal radical trachelectomy.
Key Words: Transabdominal cerclage, Vaginal radical trachelectomy, Cervical incompetence, Pregnancy outcome
