CRISPIN NINA, Deyssi  y  DURAN CALLE, Juan José. CORRELATION OF β-HCG LEVELS AND INTRA-OPERATIVE ULTRASONOGRAPHY IN ECTOPIC PREGNANCY. Rev. Méd. La Paz [online]. 2020, vol.26, n.1, pp. 18-23. ISSN 1726-8958.

Introduction: The diagnosis for ectopic pregnancy may be difficult, and must be carried out quickly and safely since a delay can lead to rupture, bleeding and endanger the life of the patient. Objective: To determine the correlation degree of β-hCG levels and ultrasonography with the intra-operative findings of patients with ectopic pregnancy diagnosis in the Gynecology and Obstetrics Service at Hospital Municipal Boliviano Holandés. Material and methods: Descriptive, cross-sectional and retrospective study that included 115 patients with ectopic pregnancy diagnosis, and admitted in the Obstetrics and Gynecology Service at Hospital Municipal Boliviano Holandés during the period 2010-2014. Results: The most frequently affected population was 20 to 30 years old (88.7%). Most of the cases were observed during 2014 (47%). Validity of ultrasound findings reflected 98.2% of sensitivity and 75 % of specificity. Safety of ultrasound findings reflected Positive Predictive Value of 99.1 % and Negative Predictive Value of 60 %. Validity of ultrasound findings combined with β-hCG serum quantification displayed a sensitivity of 99.1 % and specificity of100%. Safety of ultrasound findings combined with β-hCG serum quantification displayed a Positive Predictive Value of 100 % and Negative Predictive Value of 80 %. Conclusions: The ultrasonographic diagnostic test combined with the β-hCG serum quantification has better validity and safety than the ultrasonographic test alone.
