tubal pregnancy n.
An ectopic pregnancy developing in the fallopian tube.
By far the most important of the conditions of the Fallopian tubes is tubal pregnancy (or ectopic gestation).
The common form of extrauterine pregnancy is the tubal pregnancy.
The signs suggestive of tubal pregnancy before rupture are missed periods, pelvic pains and the presence of an enlarged tube.
About one-fourth of the cases of tubal pregnancy end within the first twelve weeks by rupture of the Fallopian tube.
tubal pregnancy is most frequent in the left tube; it sometimes complicates uterine pregnancy; rarely both tubes are pregnant.
