INTRODUCTION: Interstitial pregnancy is a rare but dangerous form of ectopic pregnancy. Although various forms of minimally invasive management for this disorder have been previously reported, optimal treatment regimen has not been yet unknown due to its rarity. CASE REPORT: A 29-year-old married woman with no previous disease history was referred under suspicion of ectopic pregnancy. Serum hCG value was 95,365 mIU/mL. On ultrasonographic examination, gestational sac with a viable embryo was identified in the left cornual region. Three-dimensional computed tomographic angiography showed prominent vascular mass in the left cornual region. Preoperative transcatheter uterine artery embolization followed by laparoscopic-assisted cornual resection with local methotrexate injection was successfully performed. CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic-assisted cornual resection with preoperative transcatheter uterine artery embolization for interstitial pregnancy with prominent vascular flow is a safe and reliable minimally invasive procedure for woman wishing fertility preservation.
