Infertility - Laparoscopic Cervical Cerclage
A 35 year old woman presented with primary infertility.
She had undergone treatment for cervical cancer (two cone biopsies). The cervix was very short and at risk of dilating during a pregnancy leading to miscarriage.
Thus a Laparoscopic Cervical Cerclage (mersilene tape) was inserted to re-inforce the cervix.
She subsequently had a successful pregnancy (delivered by Casearean Section) following IVF.
The bladder is reflected from the front of the cervix.
