LUZARDO SILVEIRA, Ernesto Manuel; PARRA INFANTE, Nelson; SANCHEZ BARRERO, Nilvia  and  TAMAYO BLANCO, Isnay. Emergency laparoscopic surgery in ectopic pregnancy. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.9, pp.1-7. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and prospective study of 32 patients with ectopic pregnancy treated through laparoscopic surgery at "Dr Joaquín Castillo Duany" Teaching Clinical Surgical Hospital in Santiago de Cuba was carried out from January, 2003 to December, 2008. The abnormal gestation, which prevailed in the Fallopian tubes (uterotubal) and in the complicated form (broken), was observed in women aged 15-31 years. Surgical technique was radical in the whole series. This guaranteed to patients their soon recovery as well as their earlier discharge from hospital, without increasing complication risks.

Keywords : woman; ectopic pregnancy; Fallopian tube; laparoscopic surgery; radical treatment.
