The long-term reproductive outcome in patients treated with linear salpingostomy for ectopic gestation was similarly impacted by laparoscopy and laparotomy, further establishing laparoscopic salpingostomy as the preferable treatment modality. Patients with two consecutive ectopic gestations may not benefit from the conservative surgical approach because it may predispose them to a high risk of recurrence.
