Contraindications to medical treatment

1. Women who are hemodynamically unstable, not likely to be compliant with post-therapeutic monitoring, and who do not have timely access to a medical institution should be treated surgically.

2. The presence of fetal cardiac activity is a relative contraindication to medical treatment.

3. Women with a high baseline hCG concentration (>5000 mlU/mL) are more likely to experience treatment failure; they may be better served by conservative laparoscopic surgery.
