Abstract
Cesarean scar pregnancy is the one of the rarest forms of ectopic pregnancy and is associated with severe complications, such as uncontrollable bleeding and uterine rupture. However optimal treatment has not been established. We present here a case of ectopic pregnancy in the previous Cesarean scar treated successfully by uterine artery embolization in combination with subsequent intra-cardiac potassium chloride and intra-sac methotrexate injection without surgical or invasive intervention at 9+3 weeks' gestational age.
Key Words: Cesarean scar pregnancy, Potassium chloride, Methotrexate, Uterine artery embolization
