Answer

In the rare patient for whom invasive surgical therapy is indicated, the operation should be planned for the second trimester. Surgical intervention during the first trimester is associated with miscarriage; surgery in the third trimester is associated with preterm labor. Urgent surgical intervention in the third trimester should coincide with delivery of the fetus.
