Laparoscopic treatment of ectopic pregnancy is gaining wide acceptance. We report a new simple laparoscopic technique involving grasping the tube with forceps and coagulating on both sides of the ectopic pregnancy site, leaving the fertilized ovum in situ. This method is suitable for multiparous women and women who request tubal sterilization, Sixteen patients (mean age 32.6 ± 4.4 years) were treated by using this method. The mean duration of hospitalization was 1.94 ± 1.12 days. No complications occurred.
