Abstract

We present a rare case in which therapy of primary ovarian preganancy, using laparoscopic laser surgery (videolaseroscopy), was successfully performed without the need of laparotomy. Because operative laparoscopy has the benefits of reduced morbidity, reduced hospitalization and rapid recovery, and because it has the advantage of reducing postoperative adhesions as compared to laparotomy, it is the preferable technique for treatment of ovarian gestation after a laparoscopic diagnosis, especially for a woman who desires to preserve her fertility potential.
