Case Report; Heterotopic Pregnancy Following Induction of Ovulation
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
Heterotopic pregnancies are occurring more commonly with the increasing use of assisted reproductive methods. No single investigation can predict the presence of heterotopic pregnancy. Heterotopic pregnancy should be suspected in any patient who presents with lower abdominal pain in the early phase of an obvious intrauterine pregnancy following fertility treatment. Transvaginal ultrasonography is a useful diagnostic adjunct. Early intervention is essential to salvage the intrauterine pregnancy and avoid maternal morbidity and mortality. Key Words: Pregnancy, Ectopic, Heterotopic, Ovulation Induction .[Trop J Obstet Gynaecol, 2002, 19: 115-116]
