In a 35 year old patient who was 8 weeks pregnant with a diagnosis of a stable, interstitial ectopic pregnancy, a decision was made to proceed with laparoscopic surgical management. A successful wedge resection of the ectopic pregnancy was completed with minimal blood loss using a Ligasure blunt tip laparoscopic sealer/divider forceps and O V-Loc suture. Other treatment modalities were discussed.
