Fimbrial ectopic pregnancy

Last revised by Dr Jeremy Jones on 20 Sep 2021

A fimbrial ectopic pregnancy is a subtype of tubal ectopic pregnancy. This subtype accounts for ~ 5 -11% 1,3 of all tubal ectopic pregnancies. In a fimbrial ectopic, the implantation is at the fimbria of the fallopian tube which is closest to the ovary. The chance of a tubal rupture is comparatively low and the embryo can often get dislodged out leading to an abdominal ectopic pregnancy.
