English term or phrase: Lip of cervix
Sto lavorando a un testo che parla di salute per le donne in gravidanza e dopo la nascita. Nella descrizione del parto, alla fase della transizione, c'è questa parte di descrizione della cervice non completamente dilatata: "Sometimes a “lip”of cervix delays the last bit of dilation. A “lip” occurs when a part of the cervix remains thick after most of the cervix has completely dilated.

Esiste un termine per tradurre il concetto o si può parlare semplicemente di collo dell'utero non completamente disteso?

Non è un testo medico ma di divulgazione.
