Threatened Abortion

 Most common complication in the first half of pregnancy

 Its incidence varies between 20—25%

 Miscarriage is 2.6 times as likely

 17% of cases are expected to present complications later in


 Etiology: embryonic abnormalities, maternal, anatomic,

endocrine, infectious, immunologic factors
Threatened Abortion

 Chief complain: bleeding per vaginum & pain

 Examination: blood, urine, pelvic examination,


 Complications: fetuses are risked for intrauterine growth

retardation, preterm delivery, low birth weight, and perinatal
Maternal: antepartum hemorrhage, manual removal of the
placenta, Caesarean delivery
Threatened Abortion


 Bed rest

 Progesterone therapy

 hCG therapy

 Tocolytic agents
Threatened Abortion

Progesterone therapy:

Oral micronized progesterone: 200 mg 1 or 2 times a day

Vaginal progesterone suppositories: 200 mg 1 or 2 times a day

Progesterone vaginal gel: 100 mg 2—3 times/day

Intramuscular progesterone: injection oil given 50 mg/day

Threatened Abortion


Adrenergic receptor agonists

Ca2+channel blockers: Nifedipin most likely to improve fetal

outcomes and less likely to cause maternal side effects.

Oxytocin-receptor antagonist

Magnesium sulphate: IV 4—6 g loading dose, then 2—4 g/hour

titrated to uterine response and maternal toxicity.

Cycloxygenase inhibitors
Hydatidiform Mole

 Approx. 20% patients with

primary hydatidiform mole
develop persistent GTD
(invasive mole, choriocardinoma,
placental site trophoblastic

 Categorized as complete or
+ Hydatidiform Mole
Complete Mole

 Between 11—25 weeks, average 16 weeks

 Vaginal bleeding (97% cases), excessive uterine enlargement (50%


 Severe vomiting and pregnancy-induced HTN (25%) and

parathyroidism (7%)

 Ovarian enlargement caused by theca lutein cysts occurs in 25—

35% cases

 Levels of hCG are typically above 50.000 mIU/mL.

 USG: snowstorm appearance

Incomplete/partial Mole
 Between 9 and 34 weeks

 Consistently associated with embryonic/fetal tissue

 Uterine size is generally small for gestational age; excessive uterine

size only in 4% patients

 Patients present with abnormal uterine bleeding in 75%

 Clinical diagnosis of missed/spontaneous abortion is made in 91%

cases of incomplete molar pregn.

 Serum hCG level normal/low

 Pre-eclampsia occurs (2.5%)

Hydatidiform Mole

Complete hydatidiform mole. The classic “snowstorm”

appearance is created by the multiple placental vesicles
Hydatidiform Mole

 Treatment: primary treatment for hydatidiform mole is

suction D & C

 Uterine evacuation is accomplished with the largest plastic

cannula that can safely be introduced through the cervics

 IV oxytocin is begun after the cervix is dilated and suction is

initiated, and continued postoperatively for several hours.
Hydatidiform Mole
Blighted Ovum

 Also called an anembryonic pregnancy or anembryonic gestation

 Occurs when a gestational sac develops without an embryo

 Often due to chromosomal abnormalities in the fertilized egg

 Occurs in the first few weeks of pregnancy

 The placenta secretes hCG  symptoms of pregnancy (+)

 Eventually results in miscarriage

 Minor abdominal cramping and light spotting/bleeding (+)

Blighted Ovum
 An ultrasound will show an empty gestational sac
Blighted Ovum


 D&C

 Tissue analysis after D&C

Death Conceptus

 Fetal death before the onset of labor or fetus with no signs of

life in utero after 20 weeks of gestation

 WHO: An infant delivered without signs of life after 20 weeks

of gestation or weighing <500 gms when gestation age is not
Death Conceptus


Unknown in 50% cases


 Maternal 5—10%
 Fetal 25—40%
 Placeental 20—35%
 Unexplained 15—35%
Death Conceptus


 Symptoms: Absence of fetal movements

 Signs:

 Uterine tone is diminished
 Fetal movement are not felt during palpation
 Fetal heart sound not audible
Death Conceptus


 USG (100%) + associated features can be noted (oligo,


 Straight X-ray abdomen (obsolete)

Death Conceptus


Depends on:

(70% ampulla, 12%
isthmus, 11% fimbriae, 2%

 Ovarian occurs about 3%

of the time, abdominal 1%
and cervical <1%
Ectopic Pregnancy
Ectopic Pregnancy


 Increased due to PID, use of IUCD, Tubal surgeries, assisted

reproductive techniques (ART)

 Average range is 1:100 normal pregnancies

 Late marriages and late childbearing  2%

 Recurrence rate: 15% after 1st, 25% after 2 ectopics

+ Risk Factor for Ectopic Pregnancy

 Previous PID – chlamydia infection

 Previous ectopic pregnancy

 Tubal ligation

 Previous tubal surgery

 Intrauterine device

 Prolonged infertility

 Diethylstilbestrol (DES) exposure in-utero

 Multiple sexual partners


 Tubal abortion – usually in ampullary about 8 weeks –

forming pelvic haematocele
 Rupture into the peritoneal cavity
 Occur mainly from the narrow isthmus before 8 weeks or later from
the interstitial portion of the tube. Haemorrhage is likely to be
 Sometimes rupture is extraperitoneal between the leaves of the
broad ligament – Broad ligament haematoma. Haemorrhage is
likely to be controlled
 Tubal pregnancy – effect on uterus

 Theuterus enlarge in first 3 months as if the implantation

were normal, reach the size of a gravid uterus of the same

 Uterine decidua grows abundantly and when the embryo

dies bleeding occurs as the decidua degenerates due to
effect of estrogen withdrawal.
Ectopic Pregnancy
+ Clinical Finding:
 Variable - Early diagnosis
- location of the implantation
- Whether rupture has occurred
 Classic symptom
 Amenorrhoea, abdominal pain, abnromal
vagina bleeding
 Classic signs – adnexal or cervical motion
 With ruptured ectopic pregnancy, finding parallel
with the degree of internal bleeding and
hypovolemia – abdominal guarding and rigidity,
shoulder pain and fainting attacks and shock.
Ectopic Pregnancy
Classical triad (50% patients)

PAIN (95% patient, variable in severity)

Amenorrhea (60—80%, slight spotting possible)

Vaginal bleeding (scanty dark brown)


 Pain : constant, cramp-like

 Vaginal bleeding – occur usually after death of the ovum and is an
effect of oestrogen withdrawal.
 Internal blood loss – severe and rapid
 Peritoneal irritation – muscle guarding
- frequency of micturation
- fever
 Differential diagnosis:
1. Salpingitis
2. Abortion
3. Appendecitis
4. Torsion of pedicle of ovarian cyst
5. Rupture of corpus luteum or follicular cyst
6. Perforation of peptic ulcer.
Ectopic Pregnancy

USG Picture:

“Bagel” sign– hyperechoic ring around gestational sac in

adnexal region

“Blob” sign – seen as small inconglomerate mass next to

voary with no evidence of sac or embryo

Adnexal sac with fetal pole and cardiac activity

Corpus luteum is useful guide when looking for EP as present

in 85% cases in ipsilateral voary

PRINCIPLE: Resuscitaion and Laparotomy

Shock treatment: IV line, blood sample, Folley’s catheter, colloids


Quick in quick out

Rapid exploration of abdominal cavity

Salpingectomy is the definitive surgery

Blood transfusion

Autotransfusion only when donated blood not available

 Treatment:
 If haemorrhage and shock present

 Restore blood volume by the transfusion of red cells or

volume expander
 Proceed with Laparotomy

 The earlier diagnosis of tubal pregnancy has allowed a more

conservative approach to management where the tube is less

 Pregnancy removed from the tube by laparoscopy

(salpingostomy) hopefully retaining tubal function.

 Trophoblast destroyed by chemotherapeutic agent such as

Medical Managment

 Significantlyworsening abdominal pain, regardless
of change in serum HCG (Check CBC)
 Haemodynamic instability
 Level of HCG do not decline by at least 15%
between Day 4 & 7 post treatment
  or plateauing HCG level after first week of
+ Follow-Up:
 Repeat HCG on Day 5 post injection if <15 %
decrease – consider repeat dose
 If BHCG >15  recheck weekly until <25 ul/l
 Surgery should also considered in all
women presenting with pain in the first few
days after methotrexate and careful clinical
assessment is required. If these is
significant doubt surgery is the safest
