Abstract Cervical incompetence has been acknowledged as a significant entity predisposing patients to second-trimester miscarriage. Various surgical techniques and approaches have been used in an attempt to prolong pregnancy and improve perinatal outcome. These include transvaginal and transabdominal cervical cerclage. Some patients require the placement of a transabdominal cervicoisthmic cerclage. Should the cerclage fail or the patient have preterm premature rupture of membranes, removal of the cerclage may be necessary. As a result the application of laparoscopy for the management of cervicoisthmic cerclage removal has been advocated in an effort to limit surgical complications. We report a case of laparoscopic removal of a transabdominally placed cervical cerclage in a 32-year-old woman at 16 weeks' gestation with preterm premature rupture of membranes and inevitable miscarriage. Laparoscopy appeared to be a safe and effective means of managing the removal of this transabdominally placed cervicoisthmic cerclage.
