Emergency hysterectomy due to massive bleeding during termination of 15-week-pregnancy with anhydramniosis and cesarean scar implanted placenta: A case report

Abstract

Cesarean section is the most commonly performed surgery in obstetrics, and its incidence is increasing with rates as high as 17% to 25% in some countries. In certain cases, cesarean scar dehiscence may lead to uterine rupture during pregnancy and delivery procedures. Moreover, cesarean scar dehiscence can be a site for developing ectopic pregnancy. We report a patient with one previous cesarean delivery, who admitted to our clinic at 15 weeks of gestation with anhydramnios and underwent cervical ripening by double balloon catheter for pregnancy termination that resulted with incomplete uterine rupture associated with the implantation of the placenta in the uterine dehiscence scar.
