Laparoscopic surgery is currently the preferred treatment for ectopic pregnancy. Interstitial tubal pregnancy is a rare and dangerous form of ectopic pregnancy that is usually treated by cornual resection or hysterectomy. In this patient, it was treated laparoscopically with a simple and safe method using three endoloops. The procedure is swift with minimal blood loss, and can be performed by any gynecologist who has experience with endoscopic surgery. (J Am Assoc Gynecol Laparosc 6(2):205-207, 1999)
