Nonsurgical treatment of ectopic pregnancy has been potentiated by recent technologic advances including sensitive human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) assays and high-resolution ultrasonography. Options include systemic methotrexate and salpingocentesis. Systemic methotrexate has been documented to be safe, effective, and well tolerated. Preliminary evidence suggests that fertility potential is comparable for conservative ...

The advanced modalities of vaginal ultrasonography and sensitive human chorionic gonadotropin assays have greatly facilitated the diagnosis of early ectopic pregnancy. The treatment spectrum for ectopic pregnancy ranges from a variety of conservative operative measures, including salpingectomy and operative laparoscopy, to various medical regimens or simply watchful observation alone. We ...

Four cases of early detected tubal pregnancies were managed conservatively by aspiration and administration of 20 mg methotrexate into the amniotic sac during laparoscopy. All three women for whom hysterosalpingograms are available had patent tubes on the side of the former ectopic pregnancy six months after treatment. Spontaneous menstruation occurred ...
Meyer W R - - 1989
A 31-year-old woman with plauteauing quantitative serial beta-human chorionic gonadotropin levels, suspect pelvic sonography and the absence of products of conception on uterine curettage was suspected of having an interstitial ectopic pregnancy. Confirmation was by endoscopy. Cornual uterine wedge resection was avoided with laparoscopically guided hysteroscopic removal of the products ...
Kaplan B R - - 1989
A case of cervical pregnancy with a fetal pole, fetal cardiac activity and a serum beta-human chorionic gonadotropin level reaching a peak of 60,000 mIU/mL was treated successfully with methotrexate and folinic acid. These criteria have been considered a contraindication to conservative medical management. Serial beta-human chorionic gonadotropin levels and ...
Confino E - - 1989
Conservative management of ampullary and isthmic tubal pregnancies has been increasingly advocated to preserve the affected tubes and results in excellent outcome. A similar approach to interstitial pregnancies is more difficult because of the vascularity of the cornual area. We report here a novel surgical approach to this problem in ...
Zakut H - - 1989
Ten women with tubal ectopic pregnancy were treated by the injection of methotrexate into the gestational sac under direct laparoscopic vision followed by a course of intramuscular therapy including folinic acid rescue.
