The effect of preinduction cervical length measurement with three different ultrasonographic methods on predicting delivery time.

AIM: This study aimed to evaluate the effect of preinduction cervical length (CL) measurement by transvaginal (TV), transperineal (TP), and transabdominal (TA) ultrasonography (USG) on the time of delivery and to compare these three sonographic methods in terms of superiority over one another.

METHODS: This study included TV, TP, and TA CL measurements in pregnant women who were planned to undergo induction of labor at 37 weeks' gestation or later. The correlations between the said three methods and BISHOP scores were evaluated. These three methods were compared in terms of superiority in predicting the time of delivery.

RESULTS: Pregnant women at 37-42 weeks' gestation undergoing labor induction were included, and all three methods were used for CL measurements. Three methods were correlated with each other (p < 0.001) and with BISHOP scores (p < 0.001).

CONCLUSION: The correlation between all three methods and BISHOP scores indicates that TP and TA USG can be used instead of TV USG. On the other hand, while TA USG did not give a clear result in the accurate estimation of vaginal delivery time, TP, and TV USG gave both accurate and close results. When all these data are evaluated, it is concluded that TPU can be used safely instead of TVU, especially in patients receiving induction.
