Two cases of heterotopic pregnancy: review of the literature and sonographic diagnosis in the emergency department.

Abstract

We present 2 recent cases of heterotopic pregnancy in which bedside sonography performed by the treating emergency physician was used to identify the heterotopic pregnancy and facilitate prompt gynecologic intervention. The cases, the sonographic approach to the diagnosis of heterotopic pregnancy, and a review of the literature are presented.
