Ectopic Pregnancy

Ectopic Pregnancy

The SEP Ectopic Pregnancy learning module focuses on training the removal of the embryo with minimal risk of injury to the surrounding structures. A camera exercise with either 0° or 30° camera angles is included.


Removal of an ectopic pregnancy is a common procedure in the early phase of a laparoscopic gynecologist`s career. It is an advantage to be able to try the procedure in a virtual environment before taking on the first patient. As well as training on the removal of the embryo, the module gives an insight into the following procedural steps:


Learn about patient, team and equipment setup for optimal access and to obtain a clear view to the monitors.


Learn about optimal placement of trocars, choices of instruments and the importance of these decisions.


Determine location and conditions with a 0° or 30° camera. Inspect and detect possible abnormalities.


Learn about exposure of relevant anatomical structures by placing the patient in the Trendelenburg position.
