Incompetant Cervix

Incompetant cervix may be an undesirable surgical side effect of HPV diagnostic or treatment procedures such as cone biopsy. Defined as the inability to remain closed throughout an entire pregnancy. It is associated with premature births and may be determined by premature effacement (shortening of the upper vaginal portion and thinning of the walls) and dilation not induced by labor, but rather a structural weakness. Incompetant cervix may be an undesirable surgical side effect of HPV diagnostic or treatment procedures such as cone biopsy.

Incompetant Cervix

  -  

HPV, Cone Biopsy

Commonly prior trauma or an inherited physical is attributed to this condition; however, other reasons exist. Risk factors are: previous pregnancy history, surgical trauma, cervical injury, DES (diethylstilbestrol) exposure, and anatomic abnormalities. There is no method to predetermine this condition, which can result in cerclage (cervical closure via stitching). Incompetant cervix may be an undesirable surgical side effect of HPV diagnostic or treatment procedures such as cone biopsy.
