Abstract

Although advances in earlier diagnosis have led to decreased case-fatality rates and conservative laparoscopic treatments have enabled improved outcomes, ectopic pregnancy remains a leading cause of maternal mortality and accounts for a sizable proportion of infertility and ectopic recurrence. The incidence of ectopic pregnancy, the trends observed in the last decade, reason for occurrence, and other questions regarding risk factors for this condition are discussed.
