RESEARCH: “Cervical Measurement and Pessary Application in Relation to Gestational Age at Delivery in Patients Treated with Fetoscopic Endotracheal Occlusion.”

OBJECTIVE:

To evaluate the impact of cervical length and cervical pessary application in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) treated by the fetoscopic endotracheal occlusion (FETO) procedure.

METHODS:

The study group consisted of 80 patients with severe CDH treated by FETO. Cervical length measurement was performed by transvaginal ultrasound in all patients within the 24 h prior to the FETO procedure. The study group (n = 44) had cervical pessaries applied routinely within the 24 h following the FETO procedure, whereas the control group (n = 36) were not offered pessaries and only had cervical length measurement performed.
