We report five cases of interstitial pregnancy, treated between 2004 to 2010, to evaluate surgical and obstetric outcome of laparoscopic cornual resection with a "purse-string" technique. A hemostatic suture was passed at the base of the mass in a purse-string fashion prior to resection, to minimize intraoperative blood loss. Subsequent pregnancies were analyzed with a mean follow up time of 48 months. The mean operating time was 39 minutes and mean blood loss 47 ml. Three patients out of four who desired children delivered at term uneventfully. Laparoscopic cornual resection with a "purse-string" technique appears to be useful for treating for early interstitial pregnancy. The technique ensures effective and safe treatment with satisfactory obstetric outcome.
