Abdominal pregnancy

Amanda Ecker, Richard Guido

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Abdominal pregnancy is the most uncommon type of ectopic pregnancy with a reported incidence of 1 in 2200 to 1 in 10,200 of all pregnancies. Presenting symptoms range from abdominal pain, mild vaginal bleeding, or painful and excessive fetal movements to hemoperitoneum and hemorrhagic shock in the most severe cases. Abdominal pregnancies are most appropriately managed surgically given the high associated maternal morbidity.
