A case report

Abstract

Operative laparoscopy has offered a revolution in gynecologic surgery. However, as with all new techniques, unique complications will be found. We present a case in which the surgical specimen, an ectopic gestation, was set aside while bleeding was addressed. Upon return to where the specimen was placed, it was found that the specimen had 'wandered' away and could not be retrieved laparoscopically. Suggestions for the management of this and similar occurrences are offered.
