Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A potentially life-threatening condition in which the EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN implants outside the cavity of the UTERUS. Most ectopic pregnancies (>96%) occur in the FALLOPIAN TUBES, known as TUBAL PREGNANCY. They can be in other locations, such as UTERINE CERVIX; OVARY; and abdominal cavity (PREGNANCY, ABDOMINAL).
Inflammation of the uterine salpinx, the trumpet-shaped FALLOPIAN TUBES, usually caused by ascending infections of organisms from the lower reproductive tract. Salpingitis can lead to tubal scarring, hydrosalpinx, tubal occlusion, INFERTILITY, and ectopic pregnancy (PREGNANCY, ECTOPIC)
The most common (>96%) type of ectopic pregnancy in which the extrauterine EMBRYO IMPLANTATION occurs in the FALLOPIAN TUBE, usually in the ampullary region where FERTILIZATION takes place.
A type of ectopic pregnancy in which the EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN implants in the ABDOMINAL CAVITY instead of in the ENDOMETRIUM of the UTERUS.
Proteins produced by organs of the mother or the PLACENTA during PREGNANCY. These proteins may be pregnancy-specific (present only during pregnancy) or pregnancy-associated (present during pregnancy or under other conditions such as hormone therapy or certain malignancies.)

Implantation in the interstitial part of the oviduct is frequently associated with severe fetal and maternal morbidity. We present a patient with primary interstitial and secondary retroperitoneal ect...
Ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized ovum implants on any tissue other than the endometrial lining of the uterus. Approximately 1%-2% of pregnancies in the United States are ectopic; however, th...
Ectopic pregnancy is defined as a pregnancy implanted outside the uterus, and >98% implant in the Fallopian tube. It has a major clinical and socioeconomic impact worldwide. The diagnosis of ectopic p...
OBJECTIVE: The increased use of assisted reproduction techniques has been accompanied by an increase in ectopic pregnancies with unusual location being associated with significant maternal morbidity a...
In an attempt to simplify the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy, the researchers will investigate the presence of specific molecular markers of ectopic pregnancy. The quantification of these...
The purpose of this study is to identify elements of a patient's demographics, history, and clinical presentation that may aid in differentiating between patients with an ectopic pregnancy...
This study evaluates how ectopic fat (in the pancreas, heart, liver and skeletal muscle), visceral fat, and subcutaneous fat changes following surgically induced weight loss using gastric...
The primary aim of this randomised trial is to determine the effects of a short peri-operative course of treatment with a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), ibuprofen, on the lo...
Cushing Syndrome is an endocrine disorder causing an over production of the hormone cortisol. Cortisol is produced in the adrenal gland as a response to the production of ACTH in the pitu...
