Objective: To retrospectively compare the postsurgical pain after single-port laparoscopic surgery and conventional laparoscopic salpingectomy for the surgical treatment of tubal pregnancy.

Methods: The cases of two groups of patients with ectopic pregnancies were reviewed: those who had undergone a single-port laparoscopic surgery (n=6) and those who had undergone a conventional multi-port laparoscopic surgery (n=20). We compared these groups’ surgical outcomes, including operative time, blood loss, use of analgesics, and complications.

Results: There was no significant difference between the two groups regarding the surgical time, blood loss during surgery, or analgesics use after laparoscopic surgery. There were no serious complications and no need for conversion to conventional laparoscopy or laparotomy in both groups.

Conclusion: Our present findings suggest that single-port laparoscopic surgery is feasible and practical for the surgical treatment of ectopic pregnancies. However, the results also indicate that the reduction of the number of laparoscopy ports did not offer further pain relief in these patients.
