Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Two cases with ectopic pregnancy were successfully treated by laparoscopic injection of methotrexate (MTX). Case 1: A 29 year-old housewife was laparoscopically treated with a 15 mg MTX injection to the left Fallopian tube. After the laparoscopy, the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) was reduced to the normal range. Case 2: A 34 year-old housewife was also laparoscopically treated with a 35 mg MTX injection to the right Fallopian tube. After the laparoscopy, the HCG was quickly reduced to the normal range. The endoscopic approach can be used as the surgical treatment of choice for ectopic pregnancies.
