OBJECTIVE: To describe resectoscopic treatment with vasopressin injection as an effective surgical intervention for ectopic pregnancy in previous cesarean delivery scar (PCDS) defect. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: University hospital. PATIENT(S): Two women with ectopic pregnancy in PCDS defect. INTERVENTION(S): The patients underwent transvaginal ultrasound examination, followed by operative hysteroscopy with vasopressin injection for evacuating the ectopic pregnancy in PCDS defect. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Conservation of the uterus. RESULT(S): Successful resectoscopic treatment of ectopic pregnancy in PCDS defect. CONCLUSION(S): Resectoscopic treatment of ectopic pregnancy in PCDS defect is a safe and efficient technique that has the advantage of a rapid return to normal levels of β-hCG.
