Cerclage Types: McDonald, Shirodkar and Abdominal. Episode: #112

Cerclage is the number one too for preterm labor prevention.


Cervical cerclage is a fantastic tool used to prevent preterm labor.  The placement of a cerclage is a surgical procedure in which a synthetic suture or tape is used to reinforce the cervix. This mechanical enhancement of the tensile strength of the cerclage reinforces the cervix, keeps it closed and is very successful at lengthening many pregnancies. 

This podcast covers the different types, why and when each is used.
