OBJECTIVE: To present two cases of interstitial pregnancy treated successfully by use of laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS). DESIGN: Case series. SETTING: Department of obstetrics and gynecology at a tertiary health care facility. PATIENT(S): Two women with interstitial pregnancy requiring surgical treatment. INTERVENTION(S): Laparoscopy by use of LESS with the single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) system. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Feasibility of LESS with the SILS system. RESULT(S): Two patients were treated successfully by use of LESS with the SILS system. After laparoscopic confirmation of the interstitial pregnancy, a cornual resection was performed with bipolar forceps and scissors for the first patient and with an automatic stapler for the second. CONCLUSION(S): Laparoscopic treatment of interstitial pregnancy by use of LESS seems feasible. Larger series are necessary to confirm these findings.
