The dilemma of the optimal surgical procedure in ectopic pregnancies occurring in in-vitro fertilization



The dilemma of the optimal surgical procedure in ectopic pregnancies occurring in in-vitro fertilization



Human Reproduction 6(8): 1167-1169



Ectopic pregnancy remains one of the undesired sequelae of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment. It seems that mechanical infertility increases the risk of this complication in IVF. Thus, the surgeon treating such a case faces the dilemma of the optimal surgical procedure because of the increased risk for repeated ectopic pregnancy in subsequent IVF cycles. Two cases are presented with repeated ectopic pregnancy occurring in IVF. One case underwent salpingectomy on the first occasion and eventually developed a contralateral repeat ectopic gestation ending with salpingectomy. The second case underwent a conservative salpingotomy in the first event and developed a repeated ectopic gestation on the same side, undergoing bilateral salpingectomy. In order to prevent repeated ectopic pregnancies in an IVF programme, a definitive surgical procedure, such as bilateral salpingectomy, should be considered in the first episode in patients referred for IVF because of tubal pathology.
