Abstract

Although assisted reproductive technology is associated with higher rates of interstitial pregnancy and heterotopic pregnancy, heterotopic pregnancy after bilateral salpingectomy is still extremely rare. We report a case of heterotopic pregnancy after bilateral salpingectomy in an in vitro fertilization/embryo transfer patient, who underwent cornual resection by laparotomy due to ruptured cornual pregnancy. However, 3 days after surgery, the remaining intrauterine pregnancy miscarried, and a dilatation and curettage was performed.
