INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to compare the incidence of preterm birth before 34 weeks of gestation among obese patients compared with nonobese patients with cerclage.
METHODS: This retrospective cohort examined women with cerclage placed between 2007 and 2012. Rates of preterm birth before 34 weeks of gestation were compared for women with cerclage who were nonobese with women with cerclage who were obese.
RESULTS: Of 617 charts reviewed, 196 were eligible with 103 patients who were nonobese with body mass index (BMI) less than 30 kg/m and 93 patients who were obese with BMI greater than 30 kg/m. The rate of preterm birth before 34 weeks of gestation was not different between obese and nonobese patients (37.9% compared with 31.2%, P=.327).
CONCLUSIONS: Two studies have investigated the effect of obesity on cerclage efficacy with conflicting results with one showing that increasing obesity decreases cerclage efficacy. In our cohort, there was no relationship between BMI and rates of preterm birth at any gestational age in women with cerclage.
