Ectopic pregnancy

Late diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy

Success story

Winnifred was 26 when she underwent a laparotomy and right salpingectomy for ectopic pregnancy. She alleged that there was a delay in making the diagnoses and that she had a poor standard of care. PMS Expert Report concluded that although the ectopic pregnancy could have been diagnosed earlier, many junior doctors prefer to wait for an ultrasound report to make the diagnosis for sure. PMS has no criticisms of Winnifred's standard of care. The case was dismissed.
