Press release from: CerviLenz

Las Vegas, NV, September 25, 2010:

CerviLenz Inc. announces the availability of its innovative device, CerviLenz® – a new tool for preterm labor triage. CerviLenz measures vaginal cervical length objectively, the first and only device of its kind. With accurate and immediate results, clinicians can make confident decisions faster.

Hospital Labor & Delivery units are often overwhelmed with cases of suspected preterm labor. A quantifiable and reliable measurement of vaginal cervical length provides important information for quick assessment of whether delivery is imminent and what level of care is necessary.

Any health care professional trained to use a speculum can use CerviLenz. Using CerviLenz in the standard workup may help hospitals reduce cost and increase efficiency while improving patient care.

Dr. Michael Ross, Medical Director of CerviLenz Inc. and a Board Certified Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist explained that “Evaluating cervical length and any cervical change over time is well-established as critical in determining preterm birth risk. A CerviLenz measurement adds significant clinical value to preterm labor triage. Until now, clinicians in Labor & Delivery have only been able to estimate vaginal cervical length subjectively with a digital exam. CerviLenz gives clinicians an objective evaluation right away. Moreover, using CerviLenz in the standard triage workup for symptomatic patients speeds decision-making. Helping clinicians determine which patients require admission and guiding more selective use of resources such as transvaginal ultrasound or the fetal fibronectin test, CerviLenz helps provide efficient, cost-effective, high quality care.”
Dean Koch, President and CEO of CerviLenz Inc. said, “We are thrilled to introduce CerviLenz to the nursing community this week as new exhibitors at AWHONN. CerviLenz is a great tool for obstetric nurses because they are on the front lines caring for pregnant women in the stressful situation of suspected preterm labor. A CerviLenz measurement is empowering and reassuring. From community hospitals to high risk centers, CerviLenz can help the obstetric team deliver the right care at the right time.”

A simple training program is available free to help hospitals put CerviLenz into practice quickly and easily.

CerviLenz Inc. is the manufacturer and distributor of CerviLenz®. CerviLenz Inc. is dedicated to making a difference in the world of prematurity and donates a portion of revenue to charitable organizations advancing maternal and fetal health worldwide.

To learn more about CerviLenz, visit Booth 600 at the AWHONN Annual Meeting September 26-28, 2010 in Las Vegas – or contact Melanie Sweeney at 440.865.1474 or
