Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the obstetric outcomes and clinical efficacy of laparoscopic surgery for women with heterotopic pregnancy. Material and Methods: We conducted a retrospective study of women who had undergone laparoscopic surgery for heterotopic pregnancy. The primary outcome was the feasibility of laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of heterotopic pregnancy and the secondary outcomes were obstetric outcomes. Results: Seventeen women underwent laparoscopic surgery for heterotopic pregnancy: 14 with tubal heterotopic pregnancies and three with cornual heterotopic pregnancies. There were no intraoperative or postoperative complications. Of these women, 13 delivered 14 healthy babies, whereas two failed to maintain their pregnancies; one had a missed abortion 2 weeks after the surgery and the other had a miscarriage due to preterm premature rupture of the membrane at 16 gestational weeks. The remaining two women have ongoing pregnancies. Conclusion: Laparoscopic surgery performed by experienced surgeons is a feasible and beneficial surgical modality for treating heterotopic pregnancy.
