Case Report on Failed Tubectomy Resulting in 3 Pregnancies (1 Intrauterine and 2 Ectopic) - An Obstetrician's Error

Nayini Krishna Sree | Ratnam Andallu


Abstract: Female sterilization through tubal ligation, a common method of contraception, may occasionally fail, leading to potentially life threatening complications such as ectopic pregnancies. This article presents a case report of G7P3L3A2E1 who experienced 3 pregnancies due to failed tubal ligation, highlighting the obstetricians errors that contributed to these occurrences, the study analyses the associated morbidity and emphasizes the importance of immediate sterilization and salpingectomy as a preventive measure in such cases. Additionally it discusses recent research findings that support the efficacy of risk reducing salpingectomy in reducing sterilization failure and subsequent ectopic pregnancies. This case underscores the significance of early detection, intervention and comprehensive management to minimize maternal morbidity and mortality in cases of failed tubal ligation.


Keywords: Tubal ligation, failed sterilization, ectopic pregnancy, salpingectomy and maternal morbidity
