STOPPIT-2: An open randomised trial of the Arabin pessary to prevent preterm birth in twin pregnancy, with health economics and acceptability

This study aims to determine whether the Arabin cervical pessary prevents preterm birth in women with a twin pregnancy and a short cervix. Women with a twin pregnancy are at high risk of preterm labour.

We have completed recruitment for the study but some women who have particpated have not yet delivered their babies. We hope to be able to share the results of the study with you early next year.

For information and advice about pessary fitting and removal, please visit Dr. Arabin GmbH & Co and watch the video here (you will need to select the UK flag to read this in English, top left hand corner of the Dr Arabin webpage).
