Although laparoscopic surgery could be an option for treating interstitial pregnancies, it has not gained wide acceptance largely because of difficulty achieving hemostasis. To overcome this, we employed long-jaw forceps in three cases of interstitial pregnancy that were successfully treated by laparoscopic cornual resection. The forceps grasped a relatively large portion of pregnant myometrium without slipping, thus securing hemostasis and facilitating suturing.
