The incidence of interstitial pregnancy is rising. Traditional treatment with laparotomy, hysterectomy, or cornual wedge resection is associated with high morbidity and detrimental effects on future fertility. A diverse array of alternate treatments has been introduced over the last 3 decades, with the common goal of achieving a minimally invasive, standardized management strategy. This has been facilitated by impressive strides towards prompt diagnosis, both radiologically and chemically. In this review, we explore the current state of the art diagnostic criteria and the clinically significant diverse therapeutic options with supporting literature. Finally, we propose a structured, best-practice management plan for the once-lethal interstitial pregnancy, based on the current literature.
