A heterotopic pregnancy is a rare complication of pregnancy in which both extra-uterine (ectopic pregnancy) and intrauterine pregnancy occur simultaneously. Heterotopic pregnancy is the combined presence of intrauterine and extrauterine pregnancies it was considered a rare event, occurring in approximately 1 in 30,000 patients, until assisted reproduction techniques became prevalent. Ectopic pregnancy is a high-risk condition that occurs in 19% of reported pregnancies although the clinical triad of pain, bleeding, and amenorrhea is considered very specific for an ectopic pregnancy, ultrasound plays important role in detecting the exact location of the ectopic pregnancy and also in providing guidance for minimally invasive treatment.
A heterotopic pregnancy occurs when there is both intrauterine and extra-uterine gestation - in other words, it is a multiple pregnancy, with one embryo implanted normally in the uterus and one implanted as an ectopic pregnancy. Heterotopic pregnancy (hp), the presence of two gestational sacs simultaneously, is a rare event, but with the advent of assisted reproductive technology (art), it is now an increasingly common complication.
Abstract: ectopic pregnancy is the most devastating catastrophe in early pregnancy the clinical presentation of ectopic the clinical presentation of ectopic pregnancy has changed from a life-threatening disease, necessitating emergency surgery, to a benign condition in. Ectopic pregnancy is the fourth most common cause of maternal death in the united kingdom, accounting for 80% of early pregnancy deaths (lewis and drife 2004)furthermore, it is still the most common cause of maternal death in the 1st trimester of pregnancy (condous g 2006) affecting 1:100 pregnancies (ectopic pregnancy trust 2007)for this.
Heterotopic pregnancy, once thought to be an extremely rare phenomenon, is becoming more common and occurs in various forms, such as bilateral or unilateral tubal, abdominal, cervical and ovarian pregnancy 2,3 the most frequent form is tubal heterotopic pregnancy. Should keep this clinical catastrophe in mind heterotopic pregnancy is a form of multiple spontaneous heterotopic pregnancy presenting with tubal rupture. Heterotopic pregnancy (hp) is defined as the coexistence of an intrauterine pregnancy and an ectopic pregnancy ie the presence of simultaneous gestations at two or more implantation sites. Introduction abdominal pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy with a high rate of maternal and fetal complications most of the reported cases are diagnosed in early trimesters, usually after presenting with complications.
Heterotopic pregnancy(hp) occurs when intrauterine and ectopic pregnancies coexist we report a case of hp at 14 wk of gestation presenting as ruptured left rudimentary horn ectopic pregnancy with live intrauterine gestation and was managed with emergency laparotomy followed by redivtion of left rudimentary non communicating horn of uterus. Sonographic appearance of heterotopic pregnancy with ruptured ectopic patient from a catastrophe on occasion, the martinez a heterotopic pregnancy diag. Abdominal pregnancy, cesarean scar pregnancy, and heterotopic pregnancy will be reviewed here the goal is to prompt clinicians to think of these diagnoses and to make suggestions for management, especially for avoiding catastrophe. Pre-eclampsia (pe) is a disorder of pregnancy characterized by the onset of high blood pressure and often a significant amount of protein in the urine when it arises, the condition begins after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
Heterotopic pregnancies pose diagnostic challenges as after detection of one pregnancy (usually an intrauterine one) an additional pregnancy is not considered as the symptoms and signs of early pregnancy, threatened abortion, like amenorrhea, pain in abdomen, nausea, vomiting and vaginal bleeding overlap. Heterotopic pregnancy is coexistence of intra- and extrauterine pregnancy and is rare cervical- intrauterine is a rare variety of heterotopic pregnancy cervical pregnancy is a rare and life-threatening form of ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy in which the egg cell is fertilized and develops outside the uterus, usually occurs in the fallopian tube 98% of ectopic pregnancy actually happens in the fallopian tubes (stoppler, 2013.
