PMID:  7465119     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Twelve pregnant women with previously undiagnosed cervical incompetence each presented with membranes bulging through a widely dilated cervix and were treated by a cerclage procedure. This emergency closure of the open cervix resulted in a high rate of fetal salvage; 10 of the 12 women were delivered of surviving infants.
