Comparison of Conventional Laparoscopy and Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery in the Surgical Treatment of Tubal Ectopic Pregnancy

Brief Summary

      In this study we aim to compare conventional laparoscopy and natural orifice transluminal
      endoscopic surgery in the surgical treatment of ectopic pregnancy.

      All the patients, with an indication of surgery for ectopic pregnancy, will be asked to
      participate in this clinical trial.

      Indication of surgery will be based on clinical findings, ultrasound scans and serum hcg
      levels. There will be no exclusion criteria.

      Duration of surgery, successful completion of the operation, intraoperative data and
      postoperative data will be collected.

      All the patients will be asked to fill out quality of recovery-40 (QoR-40) questionnaire and
      36-item short form health survey (SF-36) before surgery.

      QoR-40 questionnaire will be repeated 24 hours after surgery and repeated every 24 hours
      until discharge. SF-36 will be repeated at 1-month follow-up visit. Patients will be also
      evaluated at postoperative 3-months, and female sexual function index will be asked to be
