Objective

The term is applied to pregnancy following implantation of fertilized ovum on any tissue other than endometrium.The incidence 0,94-2,6% of all pregnancies and is increasing.The tubal presentation is the most common one.The aim of the paper is to prove that with transvaginal ultrasound development and with earlier detection of free beta-HCG in our department the diagnosis is getting better and it is possible to recognize an ectopic pregnancy at earlier stages.
Methods

We were following our diagnostic and therapeutic abilities in dealing with ectopic pregnancies in the time frame of 10 years-01.01.2001.-31.12.2010.The tables and graphics will show the numbers and locations of ectopic pregnancies in the last 10 years among our hospitalized patients.We shall demonstrate the numbers of ultrasound examinations per person, the average number of days in bed before and after the treatment.Correlation of transvaginal ultrasound and the levels of free beta subunit HCG were also examined.The treatment was operative in all cases- minimal invasive procedures were method of choice in most occasions.
Results and Conclusions

In our work,the ten year period in dealing with ectopic pregnancies was depicted.The increasing trend in the incidence of the condition was observed in our department,also the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancies is improved thanks to transvaginal ultrasound development.Getting new machines and continuing in striving to be more skilled in transvaginal ultrasound technique will ensure the results to be even better.
