Incompetent Cervix and Cerclage

Cervical incompetence is the early opening up and shortening  of cervix during pregnancy resulting in either preterm birth or miscarriage.  For women with cervical incompetence or insufficiency, cervical erclage is the panacea. Though McDonald cerclage is the most commonly used and popular type of surgery done, there is an Indian connection also, namely the Shirodkar cerclage, named after famous Indian Obstretician Dr. V. N. Shirodkar.

I found this site quite helpful and comprehensive regarding the information on cervical incompetence.
