Osmotic Dilator Intra-Abdominal Perforation: A Case Report.

CONCLUSION: This is the first reported case of an intra-abdominal osmotic dilator. Although this device is inert, close follow-up and timely retrieval, possibly with hysteroscopy or laparoscopy, are recommended to minimize the resulting inflammatory response.

Intrauterine fallopian tube incarceration is uncommon but can affect fertility. This diagnosis is important to avoid destruction of the fimbriae and necrosis of the tube and also to reduce the risk of ectopic pregnancy.

Rationale: Cesarean scar pregnancy is a rare event that carries a risk of heavy hemorrhage and emergency hysterectomy. Many treatment modalities have been reported, but with no consensus. Here we report a case of combined laparoscopic and hysteroscopic treatment with temporary occlusion of the bilateral internal iliac arteries. Patient concerns: A 28-year-old woman presented with amenorrhea diagnosed as an 11-week cesarean scar pregnancy after an unsuccessful abortion. The patient's serum human chorionic gonadotropin level was 40,542 mIU/mL. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a mass measuring 5 × 4.5 cm...

Conclusion Hysteroscopic removal of RPOC is a feasible and safe management option of this complication of pregnancy. We strongly suggest avoiding performing blind procedures such as dilation and curettage and favor the adoption of this modality that allows the removal of retained products of conception under direct visualization.
