Aim. Ectopic pregnancies account for 10-15% of all maternal deaths. Rupture of an ectopic pregnancy is an urgent medical situation, therefore prediction of any tubal rupture before its occurrence is extremely important. The aim of this study was to evaluate the tubal rupture rate in different treatment modalities in EP cases and to find a hCG level on admission and/or size of ectopic mass predictive for tubal rupture.
