Abstract

Ectopic pregnancy is the leading cause of pregnancy-related mortality during early pregnancy. Although the true incidence is unknown, it continues to increase since the 1970s and may be explained by the increased numbers of patients who are at risk for ectopic pregnancy and the improved diagnostic accuracy in the earlier stage. Early diagnosis is important in preserving maternal health and future fertility. Moreover, the improved diagnosis has facilitated the development of less invasive surgical and medical management for ectopic pregnancy. The main diagnostic tools used in ectopic pregnancy are clinical diagnosis, laboratory tests, US, and invasive procedures. The use of high-resolution US and sensitive human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) has markedly enhanced the diagnostic accuracy of ectopic pregnancy.
