Abstract

Ovarian pregnancy is the most common type of non-tubal ectopic pregnancy. It may occur without the usual expected antecedent risk factors for ectopic pregnancy. It is difficult to preoperatively make a diagnosis of ovarian pregnancy. Management of ovarian pregnancy is primarily surgical, and conservation of ovary is essential in the event that the patient desires a future pregnancy. We present 2 cases of ovarian pregnancy in our institute who underwent partial ovariectomy (wedge resection) and in both cases ovaries could be conserved.

Key words: Ovarian pregnancy, conservative management, wedge resection.
