Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate reproductive outcome after laparoscopic local methotrexate (MTX) injection for tubal pregnancy. DESIGN: Follow-up was performed after 77 women were treated with local MTX injection between January 1, 1987 and December 31, 1990. SETTING: Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in a university medical center. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Concise patient details about tubal patency in hysterosalpingography, pelvic findings at laparoscopy or laparotomy performed after the treatment, and the intrauterine and extrauterine pregnancy rates (PRs) are given. RESULTS: Intrauterine PR of 67% and extrauterine PR of 13% were achieved. CONCLUSION: Local MTX injection does not modify tubal or pelvic anatomy and does not impair subsequent reproductive performance.
