Surgical management of non-tubal ectopic pregnancies

Author and Disclosure Information

Brought to you by the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons. In this video, the authors demonstrate a selection of minimally invasive surgical techniques that can be employed for the management of various non-tubal ectopic pregnancies, specifically, cornual, cervical, and cesarean scar pregnancies. These techniques are designed to more safely resect non-tubal ectopic pregnancies by taking steps to minimize possible blood loss. The techniques include the use of dilute subserosal vasopressin, a laparoscopic tourniquet, and prophylactic access to the uterine arteries for immediate occlusion should heavy bleeding be encountered.
