Abstract

Objective. To carry out a literature review on the use of elastography in obstetrics to investigate the capabilities of this technique for uterine scar evaluation. Material and methods. A systematic review of the literature published in 2011 to 2016 was carried out searching with the use of key words. Results. Among 25 publications dealing with elastography used in obstetric and gynecologic practice, there was one publication on the assessment of tissues in the uterine scar region after cesarean section in the second trimester of pregnancy, one publication on the study of myometrial elasticity during labor, and 19 publications on the examination of the elastic properties of cervical tissues. Conclusion. This technique may be useful in... (More)

Conclusion. This technique may be useful in estimating the functional capacity of tissues in the uterine scar region after cesarean section; however, more extensive investigations are required.
