    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To estimate the annual direct and indirect costs of ectopic pregnancy in the United States and to examine trends in payment source.

    Methods

    We analyzed hospital discharge data for 1982-1989 from a San Francisco hospital and California statewide data for 1983-1987 to estimate direct medical care costs and to determine payment sources.

    Examination of national labor data was used to compute indirect cost.

    Results

    The total cost of ectopic pregnancy in 1990 was estimated to be nearly $1.1 billion.
