Paper Abstract

Introduction of the endoscopic techniques into gynecology enabled a change in the procedures in the case of ectopic pregnancy. This paper aims at presenting 76 cases of non-ruptured tubal pregnancies treated conservatively by the laparoscopic surgery with the application of the electrocoagulation or the Nd:YAG laser. The investigated group consisted of 76 patients. Forty-one (54%) of them were operated on using electrocoagulation and 35 (46%) using the Nd:YAG laser. Sixty-three pregnancies (83%) were localized in the ampulla. The ectopic pregnancy was confirmed histopathologically in 74 cases (97%). There were no complications noticed in the postoperative course. There were no differences in the efficacy and the postoperative general condition in cases treated conservatively by the laparoscopic surgery with the application of the electrocoagulation or the laser.
