Very helpful case doctor.. thank u... Let me know one thing... Many times patients manage to take MTP kits in black (illegal) If conceived.. they don't want to undergo USG as well. In case if in such case, 2 month amenorrhea, and if she has taken MTP {mefi +meso} , and if its proved to be an ectopic pregnancy, then what may happen? Now a days these things happening in practice..

Such patients come with either tubal rupture in shock at a later date....or tubal abortion

Extra uterine pregnancy.. When an ectopic pregnancy ruptures, bleeding may be severe and even threaten the life of the woman... Well managed Dr.Virajji.

Well done. Congratulations to all team members and thanks for sharing.

Appreciating surgery Good surgeon

Thank you doctor

Good case Sir instead of open laprotomy is Laproscopic salpigectomy is option? What should be the cause of ectopic in the case?

In case of ruptured ectopic with pulse being high plus Hb of 8.4gm% and hemoperitoneum ..laparotomy is adviced.. Cause of ectopic appears to be 1. PID 2. Long length of the fallopian tube
