PMID:  23183713     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
OBJECTIVES OF THE REVIEW: The aim of the review was to find radiologic investigations/criteria to diagnose rudimentary horn pregnancy antenatally pre-rupture.
SEARCH METHODS: A systematic literature review was carried out in Pubmed search for rudimentary horn pregnancies. The radiologic findings of the cases diagnosed before rupture were analyzed.
RESULTS: Ultrasound is the most commonly used technique, though MRI seems to delineate details better. Non-continuity of the lumen of the cervix with the pregnant uterine horn is an important imaging finding. High clinical suspicion and radiologic skill for diagnosis are emphasized.
CONCLUSIONS: The review presents the existing imaging criteria to diagnose rudimentary horn pregnancy and suggests future research to enhance the limited evidence.
