BACKGROUND: Ectopic pregnancies occur when the implantation of a fertilized ovum occurs outside the endometrial cavity. Such pregnancies occur in approximately 1.5% to 2.0% of all pregnancies and cause 6% of maternal deaths. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate osteopathic structural examination (OSE) findings in patients with ectopic pregnancies of uncommon locations and to establish the utility of these findings in the diagnosis of these ectopic pregnancies. METHODS: In this prospective case series, a focused OSE was performed on each patient with an ectopic pregnancy at her initial presentation after the patient history but before other diagnostic or laboratory tests were performed and surgical treatment was initiated...

We describe a rare case of heterotopic pregnancy following in vitro fertilization with transferring of two embryos in a 39-year-old woman with previous bilateral salpingectomy. An ultrasound examination was performed on the day before admission showing a vital intrauterine pregnancy and no ectopic pregnancy. The woman was admitted with a ruptured cornual pregnancy at ten weeks of gestation. Laparotomy was performed on vital indication with excision of the ruptured haemorrhagic cornual pregnancy. The intrauterine pregnancy continued uneventfully with obstetric and fetal medicine specialist monitoring...

BACKROUND: Ectopic pregnancy represents a common entity when the differential diagnosis of first trimester pathologies is performed. Extratubal location, nonetheless, is an in unfrequent situation that delays and difficults the diagnoses. CASE REPORT: 41-year-old women who goes to clinic for a pregnancy test, which proved positive done. During normal ultrasonographic we observed attached with endometrial 8 mm thick, without gestational sac inside, no free liquid in the bottom of the pouch of Douglas...

INTRODUCTION: Traditionally, interstitial pregnancies were treated with cornual resection or hysterectomy via laparotomy. However, increasingly, interstitial pregnancies are treated with laparoscopic cornuotomy, ie, removal of ectopic pregnancy tissue with preservation of uterine architecture. Although this technique may increase the incidence of persistent and recurrent interstitial pregnancy, it can potentially maintain patient fertility and decrease their risk for future uterine rupture...

There are limited data on the management of non-tubal ectopic pregnancies (NTEP). We reviewed the management of these cases at a tertiary centre with a dedicated institutional protocol. All cases of confirmed NTEP were retrospectively identified from 2006 to 2014. Records were reviewed for presenting features, mode and success of initial management, preservation of fertility and length of hospital stay. The main outcome measure was the success rate of medical management with methotrexate. The 60 cases identified included 34 cornual, 14 Caesarean section scar, nine cervical and three cervical involving previous Caesarean scar...

Interstitial pregnancy (IP) occurs within the intramural portion of the tube and accounts for 2% of ectopic pregnancies. Surgery is considered the most definitive treatment for IPs, although there is no clear consensus regarding the optimal approach. In this paper we describe the advantages of cornual resection performed using the Endoloop technique and present three patients who were successfully treated using this approach. IP diagnosis was confirmed at two and three-dimensional ultrasound and laparoscopy in all cases...

Of ectopic pregnancies encountered in clinical practice, more than 95% are located within the fallopian tube, and 2% to 4% are cornual. A cornual ectopic pregnancy is a serious clinical condition and poses diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Thus, understanding the clinical course and treatment options is essential. The authors describe the case of a 29-year-old woman who presented to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The patient was suspected of having a cornual pregnancy, and a dermoid cyst had been detected during routine ultrasonography...

PURPOSE: 11 per 1000 pregnancies are ectopic (NICE Guidelines, 2012) with 95 % of ectopic pregnancies being tubal in origin, and 80 % of these occurring within the ampulla (The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust). 5% therefore are non-tubal. In this review we aim to collate literature relevant to non-tubal ectopic pregnancy. METHODS: Literature regarding cornual, ovarian, abdominal, interstitial, cervical and Caesarean scar ectopic pregnancy was reviewed using EMBASE and Medline databases...

OBJECTIVE: Cornual pregnancy is a rare entity, representing 2% of ectopic pregnancies. Its management is poorly codified and often guided by the clinical situation. The aim of our study was to describe the management of cornual pregnancies, subsequent fertility, and obstetric outcomes according to the management. METHODS: Observational retrospective unicentric study. Nineteen patients hospitalized for cornual pregnancy between 2006 and 2015 were included. The data was collected with medical records and a phone standardized questionnaire...

Interstitial implantation in a heterotopic pregnancy is extremely rare, and despite currently available diagnostic modalities, early identification of an interstitial ectopic pregnancy remains difficult. This report describes a case of spontaneous cornual rupture at 26 weeks' gestation in a woman with diamniotic dichorionic twins that resulted in live births. The patient had previously undergone laparoscopic bilateral salpingectomy, and the pregnancy was conceived with in vitro fertilization. Interstitial implantation in a heterotopic pregnancy can go unrecognized, resulting in increased maternal and infant morbidity and mortality...

Cornual pregnancy is uncommon among ectopic pregnancies. A diagnosis of cornual pregnancy remains challenging, and rupture of a cornual pregnancy causes catastrophic consequence due to massive bleeding. In very rare circumstances, cornual pregnancies can result in a viable fetus. We report a case of a 24-year-old primigravida who presented to us with complaints of decrease fetal movements at 37(+5) weeks. Ultrasound revealed a single live intrauterine fetus with anterior low lying placenta with severe oligohydramnios (amniotic fluid index = 1...

Cornual ectopic pregnancies are rarely encountered in clinical practice. A diagnostic and therapeutic challenge, complications include hemorrhage and the presence of persistently elevated serum beta-hCG requiring administration of methotrexate. In this case, we present a patient whose postoperative course was complicated by an infected hematoma that responded to conservative management.

Cornual pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy, accounting for up to 2% to 4% of all ectopic pregnancies, with a mortality range of 2.0% to 2.5%. Hemorrhage is a key concern in the management of such pregnancies. Traditional treatment options include a conservative approach, failing which patients are offered surgical options such as cornual resection at laparotomy, which carries a high risk of hysterectomy. In recent years newer laparoscopic cornual resection or cornuotomy techniques have been used successfully to achieve better outcomes with fewer complications...
