This 32-year old patient presented at seven weeks gestation with severe left-sided lower abdominal pain. This was against the background of a previous history of left salpingectomy from a ruptured ectopic gestation seven years previously. Transvaginal sonographic evaluation revealed a viable seven week intrauterine embryo, a 2 cm left corpus luteum cyst and Doppler studies revealed reduced internal flow. This led the way for a conservative approach via laparoscopy of untwisting the pedicle to restore blood flow. In this case, the ovarian ligament was shorted using 1/0 vicryl and the pregnancy went to term.
