    Cornual pregnancy after surgical treatment of an incarcerated fallopian tube: a case report.

    J Reprod Med 2013 Nov-Dec;58(11-12):550-2
    Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Bari, Policlinico of Bari, Bari, Italy.
    Background: Incarceration of the fallopian tube is a rare condition. Symptoms are often misleading, making proper diagnosis difficult because of nonspecific clinical presentations. We report a case of cornual pregnancy occurring 7 months after the treatment of an incarcerated fallopian tube. We believe that the abnormal cornual implantation of the gestational sac was due to myometrial reconstruction of the uterine wall.

    Case: A primigravid woman treated for the incarceration of a fallopian tube was subsequently found to have a cornual pregnancy in a septate uterus. The cornual pregnancy was successfully aborted after laparoscopic myometrial reconstruction, and a metroplasty allowed a subsequent pregnancy.

    Conclusion: This hazardous type of ectopic pregnancy can be managed with systemic administration of methotrexate. If the cornual pregnancy is correctly identified at an early stage, this medical management can be attempted and offers the potential advantage of avoiding surgery and increasing the likelihood of preserving fertility.

    Recurrent cornual pregnancy after heterotopic cornual pregnancy successfully treated with systemic methotrexate.
    Arch Gynecol Obstet 2005 Dec 30;273(3):180-1. Epub 2005 Jul 30.
    Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Sint Franciscus Gasthuis, Kleiweg 500, 3045, PM, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
    This report concerns a recurrent spontaneous cornual pregnancy 2 years after selective feticide of a heterotopic cornual pregnancy which occurred after IVF for tubal pathology. The recurrent cornual pregnancy was treated successfully with systemic methotrexate. Assisted reproductive techniques, especially in patients with tubal pathology, and non-invasive management of cornual pregnancies may lead to a higher incidence of recurrence. Read More
    Hysteroscopic management of cesarean scar pregnancy after unsuccessful methotrexate treatment.
    J Minim Invasive Gynecol 2005 Jul-Aug;12(4):374-6

    Current management of cesarean scar pregnancy is conservative and consists of medical treatment with methotrexate (MTX). We present a report on a woman with this type of pregnancy who had continuous vaginal bleeding and persistent serum levels of beta human chorionic gonadotropin after undergoing curettage and MTX. Eventually, the remaining ectopic gestational tissue was removed by operative hysteroscopy. Read More

    J Minim Invasive Gynecol 2006 Jul-Aug;13(4):345-7
    Operative Unit of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Department of Surgical Sciences, University of Foggia, Foggia, Italy.
    Cervical pregnancy (CP) is an uncommon ectopic pregnancy that accounts for approximately less than 1% of extrauterine gestations. This case report describes a case of a viable ectopic CP successfully treated with systemic methotrexate therapy combined with hysteroscopic local endocervical resection of the heterotopic gestational sac. This approach, if validated, could be considered the treatment of choice to preserve the uterus in these young patients. Read More

    Background: Data concerning medical treatment of interstitial ectopic pregnancies are scarce. These pregnancies are characterized by late and serious clinical manifestations. We report a case of advanced interstitial pregnancy treated successfully by combining methotrexate (MTX) and hysteroscopy. Read More
