TOPS Study

Trial of singleton pregnancies with a short cervix

 

The purpose of this research study is to find out whether a pessary lowers the risk of a baby being born too soon in women with a short cervix.  A pessary is a soft silicone device that goes around the cervix. No studies have been done in the US to find out if placing a pessary in women with a short cervix helps the pregnancy to last longer. Studies done in other countries have had differing results.
