Abstract
Cervical pregnancy is a rare life-threatening form of ectopic pregnancy. The exact etiology of cervical pregnancy is not known, but several contributing factors have been considered. Probably a combination of factors leads to cervical pregnancy. The first case was required hysterectomy. The second case was successfully treated with a unique combination of precurettage cerclage, suction curettage and postcurettage balloon tamponade. Conservative treatment has evolved in recent years, with a considerable reduction in the number of hysterectomies. We present two cases of cervical pregnancy associated with multiple risk factors in elderly gravida, with brief reviews.
Key Words: Cervical pregnancy, Cerclage, Suction curettage, Balloon tamponade
