We describe our experience with the treatment of 4 caesarean scar pregnancies and provide an overview of current literature. Four women diagnosed with a caesarean scar pregnancy in our hospital between 1996 and 2007 were treated with local or systemic methotrexate and had a steady decline of the serum beta-hCG level. The uterus was preserved in all women and 3 of them had an uneventful subsequent pregnancy and delivery. We suggest that transcervical needle aspiration of amniotic fluid followed by intra-amniotic injection of methotrexate should be the treatment of choice, followed by surgical treatment only if methotrexate fails.
