Can you remove the baby from tube and place it

Patient: Can you remove the baby from tube and place it in the uterus

 

 

Symptoms: Morning sickness, tired, sore beast

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query,Unfortunately it is not possible that in a case of ectopic pregnancy, the pregnancy c an be removed completely and then re-implanted into the uterus. The reason is that the placental cytotrophoblastic invasion into the tube cannot be separated which is the blood supply of the foetus and hence even a small insult with blood supply, at that early in gestation is fatal for the developing embryo. So its more hypothetical than practical.I hope I have answered your query in detail,Regards
