Laparoscopic abdominal cerclage- placing tape around the cervix (mouth of the uterus) to prevent miscarriage in a patient with proven cervical incompetence (loose cervix) and failed vaginal cerclage leading to second-trimester miscarriage. The tape is placed at the level of the internal os, much higher in cervix compared to vaginal cerclage, hence giving a better success rate, more than 90 percent successful pregnancy. Laparoscopy cerclage is very fast surgery, bloodless, painless and patient is discharged on the same day. Total time taken for surgery is approx 20mins.
