PMID: 31193006.


Caesarean scar pregnancy is an uncommon form of ectopic pregnancy characterized by implantation into the site of a caesarean scar. Common clinical features include vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain; however, a significant proportion of cases are asymptomatic. The primary diagnostic modality is transvaginal ultrasound. There is no current consensus on best-practice management.
