TAMAYO LIEN, Tania Graciela  and  VARONA SANCHEZ, Joel Alejandro. Ectopic pregnancy surgical post-sterilization: Apropos of a case. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2005, vol.31, n.3, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-3062.

A retrospective descriptive study was performed on a gynecological case which underwent minimum access surgery at “Ramón González Coro” teaching gynecological and obstetric hospital in September, 2004 because she presented with extrauterine pregnancy, and then in April 2005, the same patient faced a similar condition. The review of her medical history revealed that after undergoing tubal ligation by the laparoscopic method, she presented with two consecutive uncomplicated ectopic pregnancies, which were diagnosed on the basis of clinical picture, bHCG quantification and sonography for confirmation. Taking into account that although this event is described in medical literature, the incidence on Cuban females is low, hence, we decided to make this case report.

Keywords : ectopic pregnancy; laparoscopic ligature.
