Ectopic pregnancy or tubal pregnancy occurs when fertilized egg stays in the fallopian tube or attaches itself to either of the ovaries or cervix and keeps growing. Normally an egg is released by an ovary into the fallopian tube. If it gets fertilized with the sperm, the fertilized egg moves into the uterus and attaches itself to its lining and continues to grow for the next 9 months. But when this fertilized egg stays in fallopian tube, the resultant pregnancy is not normal but life threatening and is called ectopic pregnancy.
Symptoms of an Ectopic Pregnancy
Many patients might have no symptoms at all and hence it is important for this condition to be accurately diagnosed, as early as possible.
Laparoscopic management of Ectopic Pregnancy
Ectopic pregnancy is an emergency condition that needs to be managed promptly. Surgical removal of ectopic growth or repair of fallopian tube are required in most of the cases where internal bleeding has occurred. It can be done in following two ways:
Both these procedures can be performed by laparoscopy through small incision.

Laparotomy is usually reserved for patients who are hemodynamically unstable or patients with cornual ectopic pregnancies. Rashmi hospital provides laparoscopic ectopic pregnancy treatment in bangaloreAuthored by Dr.Deepak Rao
