Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Laparoscopic management of ectopic pregnancies is becoming more common. Having recently successfully treated one case of heterotopic pregnancy by laparoscopy in our department, the object of the present paper is to review the literature regarding laparoscopically treated cases of heterotopic pregnancy in order to assess benefits, complications and safety of this procedure. A Medline search yielded 10 additional cases with ampullary, interstitional or cornual tubal pregnancy, respectively. All surgical procedures were uncomplicated and all in utero pregnancies progressed normally. Despite a small number of cases, lack of complications in these reports is encouraging feasibility of laparoscopic management of heterotopic pregnancy.
