Abstract

Rates of cesarean section (CS) are increasing globally; hence pregnancies with previous CS are also increasing at an alarming rate. This leads to increased complications in pregnancy such as morbidly adherent placentae, ruptured uterus and the rare complication of ectopic scar pregnancy. The aim of this case series is to highlight this serious complication and provide awareness to obstetricians. Early diagnosis and early treatment of cesarean scar ectopic pregnancies is essential to prevent maternal morbidity and mortality. Sonographic expertise is required to get the best results. Hemodynamically stable patients have many treatment options.
