Ectopic pregnancy happens when the fertilized ovum implants outside the endometrial lining of the uterus.
Accurate early diagnosis is life-saving, reduces invasive diagnostic procedures & allows conservative treatment that can preserve fertility.
Ectopic pregnancy must be excluded in women of reproductive age w/ a positive pregnancy test, abdominal pain & vaginal bleeding.
Ruptured ectopic pregnancy remains to be the leading cause of maternal mortality in the first trimester.

The median duration of progression-free survival (PFS) can be significantly prolonged among patients with platinum-sensitive recurrent ovarian cancer who receive the poly (adenosine diphosphate [ADP]-ribose) polymerase (PARP) 1/2 inhibitor niraparib as maintenance therapy, according to a recent phase III trial.

Laparoscopic partial cystectomy is established as the optimal treatment of full thickness bladder endometriosis. Complete excision of the lesion is essential however over excision risks unnecessary reduction in bladder volume and may risk ureteric obstruction. The following case demonstrates a new technique of cystoscopic mapping and laparoscopic resection of bladder endometriosis, allowing complete removal of the endometriotic nodule while sparing maximum bladder capacity and minimising risk of injury to the ureteric orifices.
