Objectives: the aim is to examine the laboratory findings and inflammatory markers in the predicting the rupture in patients, who were admitted to our clinic with the complaints of ectopic pregnancy.
Methods: One-hundred and fifty-four tubal ectopic pregnancy patients, who were diagnosed with ectopic pregnancy and treated were retrospectively examined.
Results: When the neutrophil lymphocyte ratios (NLR) were compared between the two groups, the mean NLR values were 5.88±4.66 and 3.20±4.80 in the ruptured and unruptured groups, respectively, the results were statistically significant (p=0.001). Similarly, the mean platelet lymphocyte ratio (PLR) values were 148.14±75.59 and 118.79±54.08 in the ruptured and unruptured groups, respectively, the results were statistically significant (p=0.026). A statistically significant difference was found between the levels of b-hCG, WBC, PLR and NLR in accordance with the presence of rupture in the patients (p<0.05) and the results of ruptured ectopic patients were found to be higher The ratio of rupture risk was 4.5 times higher in patients with PLR of ≥ 166.6, and the ratio of rupture risk was 6.9 times higher in patients with NLR of ≥ 4.
Conclusion: We thought that the inflammatory markers of NLR and PLR could be used for the prediction of rupture.
