Endomyometrial Thickness Measurement for Interstitial Ectopic Pregnancy with @ultrasoundREL.  #FOAMED

Ultrasound Podcast show

Summary: Wow, that is a mouth full.  Luckily, we have Resa Lewiss, the current chair of the ACEP ultrasound section, to go over this with us.  It came to our attention based on an article that Resa was the lead author on, and to be honest we didn’t know what to do with it.  So we decided we better figure that out. Also, at the very bottom of this are some show notes for you that you can refer to while listening or afterwards…..whatever floats your boat (does anyone know what that means?).

Interstitial ectopics – higher risk for morbidity and mortality but rare. Risk of interstitial ectopic in 2-4% of all ectopics. Risk of ectopics 2% of all pregnancies, but  6-16%% of all 1st trimester pregnancies presenting to the emergency department. Thus risk of interstitial ectopic ~2-3/500 1st trimester pregnancy patients (ish) no prospective studies – so who knows! 8mm – no worries playa 1 J Ultrasound Med. 2014 Jul;33(7):1143-6. 2 Obstet Gynecol Surv. 2013 Aug;68(8):571-8
