Most of treatments have been performed laparotomy, but the rapid advances in laparoscopic operative and laboratory techniques and instrument allowed to apply laparoscopic surgery to this disease. We have reviewed 342 cases of ectopic pregnancy from march 1994 to march 2001.The cornual pregnancies were 21 case (6.1%), and the laparoscopic management in 11 cases. The mean gestational age at the time of laparoscopic surgery was 9.1 1.2 (n=11) weeks, and laparotomy was 9.4 1.3 (n=10) weeks. There were no significant difference. The mean operation time of laparoscopic surgery was 72.8 25.5minutes, and laparotomy was 68.3 24.3minutes. The mean hospital days of laparoscopic surgery were 4.9 2.4days, and laparotomy were 6.6 2.3days. In conclusion, laparoscopic surgery can be used as effective and safe as laparotomy for cornual pregnancy.
