Abstract

Chronic uterine inversion is a potentially dangerous condition that often requires abdominal surgical reduction of the uterine inversion. Uterine inversion can recur after successful uterine replacement. A young primagravida presented with chronic recurrent uterine inversion 5 weeks after spontaneous vaginal delivery. The uterus was replaced abdominally and an abdominal cervical cerclage was placed to prevent recurrent inversion. Abdominal cervical cerclage can be utilized after treatment of chronic recurrent uterine inversion to prevent future recurrence of uterine inversion.
