The Teaching Point

Magnetic Resonance Imaging of an incarceration of the gravid uterus is the cornerstone of a successful approach, since a conscientious description of the disturbed uterine and pelvic anatomy is the key to anticipating possible complications and morbidity of this disorder and its treatment. Colonoscopy-assisted manual reduction of this potentially perilous obstetric condition is feasible during the second trimester of pregnancy.

Case report: Incarceration of the gravid uterus: a radiologic and obstetric challenge

Free full text article: Case report: Incarceration of the gravid uterus:  a radiologic and obstetric challenge

Abstract
We will present the fourth case in the English-language literature of a mid-gestational colonoscopy-assisted manual reposition of an incarcerated uterus. Despite the ready availability of ultrasound, a great number of incarcerations are not recognized before term. Since early diagnosis is the key to a successful treatment, it is important that providers acquire prompt knowledge of this obstetric disorder. Magnetic Resonance Imaging has an important additional value to ultrasound in the detailed scanning of this potentially perilous condition.
