VIDEO | Removal of a cesarean scar ectopic and hysterotomy revision
In very rare cases, a pregnancy can implant in places it's not supposed to, known as an ectopic pregnancy. In this case, the pregnancy started growing in her cesarean scar.

VIDEO | Laparoscopic repair of an amnioperitoneal fistula
UNC is one of only a few centers around the world that does in utero surgeries for certain conditions. The surgery is performed similar to a cesarean--the baby is delivered from the uterus, the problem is corrected, and the baby is then put back into the uterus to continue growing until it's time for delivery. In this case, the incision that was used to deliver the baby was leaking amniotic fluid and had to be closed back together while the patient was still pregnant.
