Intramural pregnancy following difficult embryo transfer

Hum Reprod. 1994 Dec;9(12):2427-8. doi: 10.1093/oxfordjournals.humrep.a138463.


We report an intramural pregnancy following a difficult embryo transfer in a 31 year-old woman, having in-vitro fertilization and embryo transfer for tubal factor infertility. The creation of a 'false passage' at a previous instrumentation of the cervix may be implicated in the ectopic placement of embryos.
