Incompetant Cervix

Incompetant Cervix

An incompetant cervix is treated with a leep procedure, colposcopy. There is no method to predetermine this condition, which can result in cerclage (cervical closure via stitching). Risk factors are: previous pregnancy history, surgical trauma, cervical injury, DES (diethylstilbestrol) exposure, and anatomic abnormalities. Commonly prior trauma or an inherited physical is attributed to this condition; however, other reasons exist. An incompetant cervix is treated with a leep procedure, colposcopy.

Defined as the inability to remain closed throughout an entire pregnancy. An incompetant cervix is treated with a leep procedure, colposcopy.
