Taheripanah, Robabeh; Hosseini, Maryamsadat & Hashemi, Mohamad
Ectopic pregnancy is one of the pathologic entities that it destroys the
fallopian tube and impairs the future pregnancy. There are different medical and
surgical therapies in order the treatment and reserve of fertility. The aim of this report is
discuss a case of successful intrauterine after management of ectopic pregnancy with
local injection of KCL in an infertile PCOD patient.
The patient was a PCOD woman with gestational age of 8.5 weeks. One
gestational sac and alive fetus with normal heart beat was seen in the right adnexa.
Hemodynamic situation was stable. 0.5cc KCL 10% was injected to the fetal heart and
the extracted tissue sent for pathology. We evaluated the effects of this treatment by
measuring serial human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) titers. Moreover, we used
hysterosalpingogrphy to diagnose and to evaluate the patency of the tubes. Induction
ovulation and intrauterine insemination was done and pregnancy occurred. Patient
passed the pregnancy very good and she delivered by cesarean section due to breech
presentation at 39 weeks of gestational age. There was no sign of pathologic finding in
the tubes or adhesion or sequel of ectopic pregnancy.
The beneficial outcomes of this kind of treatment suggest that local
injection of KCL as a low invasive treatment can be the choice treatment for alive and
progressed ectopic pregnancy or heterotopic pregnancy. Because of rarity of this
management and successful intrauterine we reported the usefulness of local KCL
injection for the successful conservative treatment of alive ectopic pregnancy in Iran.
