Topics from this paper

Ovarian ectopic pregnancy
The rare case of a 25-year-old female who suffered from an ovarian ectopic pregnancy, who presented at 10 weeks gestation with a 1-day history of vaginal bleeding and lower abdominal discomfort, and made a good postoperative recovery and was discharged on the second postoperative day. Expand
Contralateral ovarian pregnancy after single tubal recanalisation
This is the first reported case of an ovarian pregnancy occurring after tubal recanalisation, and altered motility of the reconstructed tube may cause expulsion of fertilized ovum into the peritoneal cavity and contralateral ovarian implantation. Expand
Ovarian cystectomy of an ovarian ectopic pregnancy conceived by in vitro fertilization
A rare case of a 28-year-old female who suffered from a right ovarian ectopic pregnancy conceived by in vitro fertilization (IVF) is illustrated in this paper. She had history of one earlierExpand
A G2P1L1 with 5 weeks amenorrhoea presented to the emergency room with complaints of diffuse abdominal pain and spotting per vaginum, and ruptured tubal ectopic pregnancy was suspected and emergency laparotomy done. Expand
Pre-Operative Diagnostic Dilemma-Ovarian Ectopic Pregnancy
A 29-year-old woman, nulliparous, admitted to the hospital forsuspected ectopic pregnancy was successfully managed by surgery and histological studies confirmed an ovarian pregnancy. Expand
Ovarian Heterotopic Pregnancy after Ovulation Induction with Clomiphene Citrate
Increased awareness of the risk of heterotopic pregnancies following fertility treatments can prevent fatal outcomes and allow for conservative treatments and preservation of fertility. Expand
Incidence, diagnosis and management of tubal and nontubal ectopic pregnancies: a review
The incidence, risk factors, diagnosis, and management of tubal and non-tubal ectopic and heterotopic pregnancies are described, and the existing data regarding recurrence and future fertility is reviewed. Expand
A twelve year analysis of non-tubal ectopic pregnancies: Do the clinical manifestations and risk factor for these rare pregnancies differ from those of tubal pregnancies?
NTE pregnancies are likely to present most commonly at 6–10 weeks gestation and therefore clinicians should have a high index of suspicion when treating any pregnant woman at this gestation, as the incidence of NTE pregnancies is becoming increasingly common. Expand
[Pregnancy of unknown location].
Surgical intervention to diagnose the location of the pregnancy should be restrictive and active expectant management of asymptomatic women with a pregnancy of unknown location has been shown to be safe. Expand
Successful treatment of ovarian pregnancy with laparoscopy-assisted local injection of etoposide.
Treatment of ovarian ectopic pregnancy with a laparoscopy-assisted local injection of etoposide might be a less invasive choice that can circumvent the systemic side effects of the medication. Expand


Ovarian pregnancies treated with methotrexate.
Medical therapy in ectopic and ovarian pregnancies in particular, can be a valid alternative to the surgical approach, since it can guarantee the reproductive function in a better way, and the success of the therapy depends on the precociousness of the diagnosis. Expand
[Ovarian pregnancies: revaluation of diagnostic criteria].
Ovarian pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy, but its incidence is certainly underestimated and search for difficult to detect ultrasonographic features is essential. Expand
Laparoscopic diagnosis and methotrexate treatment of an ovarian pregnancy: a case report.
This report suggests an alternative for dealing with the diagnostic dilemma of differentiating an ovarian pregnancy from a ruptured CL cyst and suggests a conservative management approach that willExpand
131I therapy for differentiated thyroid cancer leads to an earlier onset of menopause: results of a retrospective study.
Data indicate that 131I treatment is probably associated with an earlier ovarian failure in thyroid cancer patients, and might contribute to the process of the follicular atresia, thus inducing earlier menopause. Expand
Use of Exogenous Hormones and Risk of Papillary Thyroid Cancer (Washington, United States)
The hypothesis that use of exogenous estrogens increases the risk of female thyroid cancer is not supported, as the data do not support the hypothesis. Expand
Bone metabolism in patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma receiving suppressive levothyroxine treatment.
A well-adjusted suppressive LT(4) therapy of less than 2.6 microg/kg and normal estrogen levels do not seem to increase bone metabolism in estrogen-sufficient patients with DTC, and the information provided by markers of bone metabolism may help to prevent bone damage. Expand
Zur Casuistik der Ovarialschwangerschaft
With the available evidence it was appropriate that our patient was treated with sequential combined HRT, as the benefits far outweighed any theoretical risk of worsening her prognosis
