Twenty-four conservative surgical procedures for unruptured tubal pregnancies were performed on 23 patients with poor past obstetric performance. All cases were diagnosed preoperatively by laparoscopy. Salpingotomy was performed in 20 cases and fimbrial expression of the ectopic pregnancy was performed in 4 cases. In the group of conservatively treated patients there were 15 live births in 11 women and 28 intrauterine pregnancies in 14 women. No ectopic pregnancies occurred in the operated tube. Early diagnosis and conservative surgical treatment of unruptured tubal pregnancy is appropriate for patients with poor reproductive histories.
