Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present a case in which treatment of interstitial pregnancy with local MTX administration was performed successfully through hysteroscopic vision, without the need to operate. Decreased gestational sac dimension and increased or low beta-hCG level ( < 1,400 mIU/mL) facilitates the success rate. The follow-up showed disappearance of the gestational sac and decrease of beta-hCG levels to < 10 mIU/mL. We conclude that local MTX administration via hysteroscopy after tubal ostium visualization is feasible. The procedure should be considered in women during the reproductive age, especially in rare cases of interstitial pregnancy.
