The treatment of mid-gestational uterine incarceration remains a challenge. The success rate of manual reduction decreases with gestational age, and an operative procedure may carry important fetal, next to possible maternal morbidities. We will present four cases of uterine incarceration between the 15th and 25th week of pregnancy of which three colonoscopy-assisted manual repositions proved successful. It illustrates that conservative treatment of uterine incarceration is feasible, even during the late second trimester. That is why a review of the conservative approach of this rare condition is also presented.
