Cervical Narrowing

Cervical Narrowing: Overview

Cervical stenosis is a blockage of the cervical canal from either a congenital defect or from complications of surgical procedures.

Causes and Development

Surgeries performed on the cervix may cause narrowing or total closing of the canal of the cervix.  It can happen with any surgery performed on the cervix and is caused by improper healing of the tissues after a procedure.  Cervical stenosis is more common after a LEEP procedure than after cryotherapy.
