Premature delivery: Cervical stitch information

For those interested in birth trauma cases, the recent Canadian decision of KS v Wilcox [2016] ABQB 483 was a claim based on assertions of deficient management after a routine transabdominal ultrasound performed at 21 weeks gestation raised concerns about the possibility of pre-term delivery.

The claimant alleged that the physicians should have informed the mother of the benefits and risks of cervical cerclage (stitch), a treatment option for an incompetent cervix.
