  • Pregnancy in a cesarean scar is the rarest form of an ectopic pregnancy. (dovepress.com)
  • Three days after a combination of methotrexate and mifepristone was administered, the gestational sac was removed under laparoscopy, which enabled a successful treatment for the unruptured ectopic pregnancy in a previous cesarean scar and made it possible to preserve the reproductive capability of the patient.

  • Lisbon, 16 June 2015: The risk of ectopic pregnancy following fertility treatment with assisted reproduction (ART) is small but significantly higher than found in natural conceptions. (esciencenews.com)
  • Now, a nationwide population-based analysis of all ART pregnancies achieved in the UK between 2000 and 2012 has found that the rate of ectopic pregnancy following IVF and ICSI progressively decreased throughout these 12 years, almost halving from an overall rate of 20 to 12 cases per thousand.

  • Ectopic pregnancy occurs when an embryo implants outside the uterus, usually in one of the Fallopian tubes. (esciencenews.com)
  • This study, performed as an analysis of all 161,967 UK treatment cycles reported to the HFEA between 2000 and 2012, aimed to discover if the advance in ART techniques in the past few years had affected the incidence of ectopic pregnancy, and what its risk factors in ART might be.

  • 2) However, when assessed for each year, the incidence of ectopic pregnancy was found to have fallen progressively - from a rate of 20 per thousand cycles in 2000 to 12 per thousand in 2012. (esciencenews.com)
  • When these same IVF/ICSI pregnancies were examined further, the major risk factor for an ectopic pregnancy was the presence of a tubal problem in the diagnosis, which more than doubled the risk (adjusted odds ratio 2.23). (esciencenews.com)
  • Commenting on the findings, Professor Polyzos said that the decrease in risk of ectopic pregnancy in ART "appears strictly associated with the reduction in the incidence of tubal factor infertility and the transfer of fewer embryos" in ART. (esciencenews.com)
  • Campaigns for the widespread use of single embryo transfer in IVF, he added, would lower the risk of ectopic pregnancy even further by minimising the number of multiple pregnancies. (esciencenews.com)
  • A recent analysis of national IVF data in the USA found that the rate of ectopic pregnancy was 1.6% when one embryo was transferred, and 1.7%, 2.2% and 2.5% when two, three, or four or more embryos were transferred. (esciencenews.com)
  • Maternal
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) has an incidence of 0.5 to 7 per 1,000 pregnancies, and is the second most common cause of maternal death in developed countries after bleeding. (wikipedia.org)
  • This increased risk is caused by an increased immune tolerance in pregnancy to prevent an immune reaction against the fetus, as well as secondary to maternal physiological changes including a decrease in respiratory volumes and urinary stasis due to an enlarging uterus. (wikipedia.org)

  • MONDAY, Oct. 22, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Deaths and complications among pregnant women with lupus have declined in the United States over the past two decades, a new study finds. (hon.ch)
  • Pregnancy has long been considered high risk for women with lupus, and authors of the study decided to investigate if the outlook for pregnant women with lupus has improved. (hon.ch)
  • The study found that pregnant women with lupus had higher rates of complications, as well as higher death rates among mothers and fetuses. (hon.ch)
  • Mehta called the findings "very encouraging," but said more research is needed to further reduce the risk of complications and death among pregnant women with lupus. (hon.ch)
