ABSTRACTIntroduction: The cervical longitude has demonstrated to have better predictive value for premature childbirth in all the studied populations, even in asymptomatic women. Objective: To characterize the pregnant with low risk of preterm childbirth according to cervixmetry. Material and method: A descriptive, retrospective of traverse court study was carried out. Results: 44,4% of the patients with short cervix in the exploration didn't develop preterm childbirth, with a sensibility of 76,92% and a specificity of 91,49%, while in most of the gestating the cervical reduction was not observed, what constitutes 99% of the casuistry. Conclusions: 4% of the gestating ones without risk for prematurity presented a preterm childbirth with cervixmetry of less than 25 mm. The more frequent neonatal complication was the transitory distress followed by the infection for the newly born before the term.
