Laparoscopic Management of Emergency 12 weeks Gestational Age Cornual Ectopic Pregnancy

Dr. Tamer Ahmed Hosny.

There are various possibilities for treating cornual ectopic pregnancies, including medical approaches using methotrexate either local or systemic and surgical approaches using laparoscopy or lapartomy. This report describes the laparoscopic management of a large cornual ectopic pregnancy (13 week gestational age) admitted to emergency ward as severely disturbed ectopic pregnancy not diagnosed as cornual ectopic [1].

Traditional treatment of cornual pregnancy consists of hysterectomy or cornual resection by laparotomy. Laparoscopic treatments include cornual resection, cornuostomy, salpingostomy, or salpingectomy [1].
