6. Ectopic pregnancy

Ectopic pregnancy Ectopic pregnancy - NICE CKS Share Ectopic pregnancy: Summary An ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that implants outside the uterine cavity. Most ectopic pregnancies (93–98%) implant in the fallopian tube. The others are non-tubal and may implant in the ovary, abdomen, cervix, caesarean section scar, interstitial part of the fallopian tube, or the cornua of a unicornuate or bicornuate uterus. There are about 11,000 ectopic pregnancies in the UK each year, with an ectopic (...) pregnancy occurring in about 11 in 1000 pregnancies. Risk factors include tubal damage, maternal age over 35 years, and smoking. However, in about a third of cases, there are no identifiable risk factors. Complications include: Tubal rupture (which may lead to maternal death, if treatment is delayed). Recurrent ectopic pregnancy. Grief, anxiety, or depression. The clinical features of an ectopic pregnancy may be atypical and can resemble those of other more common conditions, such as urinary tract

Aberrant expression of interleukin-6 and its receptor in Fallopian tubes bearing an ectopic pregnancy with and without tubal cytomegalovirus infection Cytomegalovirus (CMV) has recently been suggested as a potential risk factor for the development of ectopic pregnancy (EP) following upper genital tract infection in women.

20. Emergency physician ultrasonography for evaluating patients at risk for ectopic pregnancy: a meta-analysis (PubMed)

Emergency physician ultrasonography for evaluating patients at risk for ectopic pregnancy: a meta-analysis Ectopic pregnancy is a common concern in emergency departments (EDs) and remains the leading cause of first-trimester mortality. Pelvic ultrasonography by emergency physicians has been investigated as a diagnostic test for ectopic pregnancy. We present a meta-analysis of the use of emergency physician ultrasonography in the evaluation of patients at risk of ectopic pregnancy.A structured (...) search was performed of both MEDLINE and EMBASE. Inclusion criteria were that (1) the study reported original research on ED patients at risk for ectopic pregnancy; (2) an emergency physician performed and interpreted the initial pelvic ultrasonography; and (3) follow-up was conducted on all patients. Sensitivity was defined as the proportion of patients with ectopic pregnancy for which ED ultrasonography demonstrated no intrauterine pregnancy. A random-effects model was used to obtain summary test
