Laparoscopic removal of the products of conception remains the treatment of choice for ectopic pregnancy (EP). Systemic administration of methotrexate (MTX) is a promising new treatment; however, its efficacy has to be established in clinical trials. Local treatment by laparoscopy with MTX, prostaglandin, or other substances is not as effective as laparoscopic salpingostomy.
