Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cesarean scar ectopic pregnancies may be difficult to diagnose and may result in uterine rupture or hysterectomy. Based on location and vascularity, especially in the presence of fetal cardiac activity, local treatment with transvaginal ultrasound-guided injection of methotrexate is an excellent option which also optimizes the chance for fertility preservation.
