Amniotic Fluid Sludge in Cerclage Patients as an Indicator for Increased Risk of Preterm Delivery and Neonatal Outcome.

Amniotic Fluid "Sludge" Does Not Increase Risk of Preterm Delivery in Cerclage Patients.

177 patients were selected from a data base of 1890. 60 patients had sludge, 117 did not have sludge. Conclusion AF sludge on ultrasound had no association with increased risk of preterm delivery in patients with cerclage.
