Laparoscopic management of ectopic pregnancies is the accepted method of treatment in most centers. This report describes a case of persistent trophoblastic implants to the peritoneum after laparoscopic linear salpingostomy for evacuation of an early ectopic pregnancy. Based on this experience, methods for follow up after such procedures, and recommendations for management of persistent trophoblastic implants are discussed.
