[Early total occlusion of os uteri prevent habitual abortion and premature deliveries (author's transl)].

[Article in German]


Repeated late abortions and high-risk, low-chance premature births are among the problems of obstetrics and perinatal medicine still to be solved. It seems that a solution is on its way, through the early total occlusion of the os uteri introduced by us - a solution for at least some of these highly problematic cases. The special advantage of this measure is considered to be the avoidance of an infection ascending to the cervix and to the lower egg-pole resulting in abortion or premature birth. Early total occlusion of the os uteri has been performed on ten women; three have since been delivered of healthy children approximately at term. Six further pregnancies are proceeding normally, five without any phenomena worth reporting, so that further successes can be expected. In one case the external os uteri has become recanalized, and there are premature contractions. In one patient premature delivery occurred after 24/5 weeks of pregnancy with subsequent death of the highly immature newborn post partum.
