A 10-mm trocar was inserted directly into the abdomen through a small incision in the umbilicus. Using 3.5 liters of carbon dioxide, a pneumoperitoneum was created. ectopic pregnancy The hemoperitoneum was noticed, and another 10-mm trocar was placed in a small suprapubic incision. Two 5-mm ports were also placed under direct visualization in both the right and left lower quadrants. With an irrigator and aspirator, the hemoperitoneum was reduced. The left fallopian tube was noted to be almost to the point of rupture due to a mass in the tube. The fallopian tube was distended beyond repair; so this needed to be removed. The tube was tied off and removed with its contents through an Endo Catch bag through the 10-mm port. ectopic pregnancy Inspection of the abdomen noted no other problems; adequate hemostasis was noted, and ports were removed.
