Abstract

A 36-year-old, gravida 8, para 6, woman with six prior cesarean sections presented at 6 weeks with a cesarean scar pregnancy. Medical management was performed initially; however, subsequent three-dimensional sonographic examinations revealed trophoblastic invasion into the bladder. This led to robotic-assisted partial cystectomy, fulguration of invaded pregnancy, and repair of the uterine defect.
