NICE are planning an update of Guideline CG154 on ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage. The update will focus on the accuracy of ultrasound for diagnosing ectopic pregnancy.

An extension to the scope will be needed to incorporate a new review question about the effectiveness of expectant management compared to medical management for ectopic pregnancy.

A change in the title of the NICE guideline will be needed to make clear that the guideline only refers to tubal ectopic pregnancy rather than any type of ectopic pregnancy.
