Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of conservative management of cervical pregnancy with embryonic heart activity by ultrasound-guided local injection.Methods: Retrospective case series at University tertiary care Hospital. Eight patients diagnosed with cervical pregnancy with embryonic heart activity managed conservatively. the intervention was ultrasound-guided local injection of methotrexate (1 mg/kg) and potassium chloride (2 meq/mL). Measurements were occurrence of morbidity, necessity for further intervention, the initial titers of beta-hCG, interval of time in which the levels of beta-hCG became negative, period for regression of cervical pregnancy at ultrasound and future pregnancy.Results: All patients were treated successfully. the initial levels of beta-hCG ranged from 3013 to 71199 mUI/mL. One case evaluated with infection. There was no need for additional intervention in our series study. the interval of time for the levels of beta-hCG becomes negative range from 2 to 12 weeks. the period for the regression of the cervical pregnancy at ultrasound range from 3 to 14 weeks. in two cases intrauterine pregnancies occurred after the treatment.Conclusion: Conservative management of cervical pregnancy with embryonic heart activity by ultrasound-guided injection is an effective treatment avoiding the need of further intervention.
