Instituto Bernabeu researchers have presented experience of a clinical case that describes uterine incarceration, a very infrequent complication during pregnancy. They gave their presentation at the 1st National Congress of the Spanish Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (SEISEGO) that was held within the framework of the Spanish Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics Congress (SEGO). Uterine incarceration occurs during pregnancy when the uterus becomes wedged into the pelvis. There are very few available described cases of this complex and serious condition that is difficult to diagnosis. As such, this study is a very valuable contribution towards improving our understanding of it and advising medical staff about when the symptoms arise.
