Ectopic Pregnancy Tutorial

Ectopic pregnancies are pregnancies that implant and grow outside the uterine cavity (womb). The likelihood of ectopic pregnancy is no longer uncommon and all ectopic pregnancies are very dangerous. Most ectopic pregnancies occur in the fallopian tube but they may also occur in the abdomen, cervix, or ovary. There have been tremendous advances in the diagnosis and treatment of ectopic pregnancy, which have often allowed a shift in clinical focus from "saving the woman's life" to "saving the woman's fertility."

In this ectopic pregnancy tutorial, the tests that may allow early detection of an ectopic pregnancy, risk factors for ectopic pregnancy, and treatment options for a known ectopic pregnancy are reviewed and discussed by Dr. Eric Daiter.

General information about ectopic pregnancy includes the range of locations in which they occur and the likelihood of occurrence in these regions. Dr. Eric Daiter presents this information and the history of advances in medical treatments, including tests that allow earlier detection, use of aseptic techniques, antibiotics, anesthetic agents, availability of blood products, and refinement of surgical techniques.

Incidence rates and risk factors for ectopic pregnancy are fairly well known in the USA since ectopic pregnancies are reported to the national Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Dr. Daiter reviews the known risk factors, including the history of a prior ectopic pregnancy, prior surgery on the fallopian tubes, a history of pelvic infection, use of In Vitro Fertilization, IUD use, history of damage to the uterine cavity, exposure to DES in utero, chronic pelvic inflammation, and Salpingitis Isthmica Nodosa.

Ectopic Pregnancy Symptoms

Early diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy largely determines the treatment alternatives that are appropriate and the prognosis of treatment in terms of preserving fertility. Dr. Daiter discusses the blood work and ultrasound examinations that can help to determine the likelihood of an ectopic pregnancy and allow for early intervention.

Treatment alternatives for ectopic pregnancy may appropriately include medical management, surgical management and conservative (expectant) management. Dr. Daiter presents a detailed description of the medical and surgical alternatives, including relative risks and benefits, and when conservative management is considered.
