Objective. Placenta accreta is a life‐threatening problem that is rising in incidence in the developed world. The increased risk of placenta accreta in women with placenta previa and 1 or more prior cesarean deliveries is well established and prompts careful sonographic evaluation. Our objective was to emphasize that accreta is also identified at sites other than cesarean scars. Methods. Two cases of placenta accreta without placenta previa seen in association with uterine scarring from… 

Placenta praevia with placenta accreta: A true maternal near miss

TLDR
This case report is an example of a true near miss as the patient went into cardiac arrest at the time of caesarean section, but could be revived by sustained effort with timely resuscitation, caedarean hysterectomy and internal iliac artery ligation.

Management of placenta accreta

TLDR
Management of placenta accreta involves two principal difficulties: first, its identification, which is aided by risk factor assessment and complementary examinations, and second, its management which strives to reduce maternal complications as much as possible.

MAGNETIC RESONANCE EVALUATION OF INVASIVE PLACENTA – OUR EXPERIENCE

TLDR
MRI is very useful for accurate evaluation of placenta accreta particularly when USG findings are ambiguous or when there is a posterior placentA.

Placenta accreta, increta, and percreta.

Ultrasound Imaging of Placenta Accreta With MR Correlation

TLDR
Ultrasound and MRI features and MRI protocols will be reviewed and improved outcomes have been shown when the antenatal diagnosis of placenta accreta is made.

Placenta Increta After Hysteroscopic Myomectomy

TLDR
Patients with a history of hysteroscopic myomectomy or other uterine leiomyoma treatment are at an increased risk for abnormal placentation, and imaging studies are suggested in such patients to coordinate multidisciplinary care to decrease maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality.

PLACENTA ACCRETA , ABOUT A CASE

TLDR
The aim of this study is to shed light on the main risk factors and pathophysiological mechanisms that can induce a placenta accreta as well as the different diagnostic and therapeutic modalities.

The antenatal diagnosis of placental attachment disorders

  • Medicine
    Current opinion in obstetrics & gynecology
  • 2011
TLDR
Antenatal identification of placenta accreta is possible with high sensitivity in patients withplacenta previa and a previous cesarean section, and in at-risk patients who have not had previous uterine surgery.

Save the Uterus

TLDR
Examining placenta accreta with methotrexate helps in tiding over the life-threatening complications and preventing hysterectomy, thus, SAVING the uterus.

TLDR
Positive sonographic results suggest presence of numerous intraplacental vascular lacunae appears to be an additional risk criterion for placenta accreta, separate from the other criteria listed above.

TLDR
Magnetic resonance imaging has not yet been shown to aid in the diagnosis, but in the future, with improvement of resolution and shortened sequences, it should be particularly useful in identifying the patients that have placenta percreta.

Alternative conservative management of placenta accreta. A case report.

TLDR
If placenta accreta is not diagnosed antepartum or during labor, especially when no risk factors are present, adequate preparations cannot be made, and a combined conservative approach may prove helpful in controlling bleeding and avoid hysterectomy and hypovolemia.

TLDR
A case of placenta previa/accreta was diagnosed at 23 weeks' gestation using color Doppler ultrasound and a strong association between the lacunar flow pattern and the abnormally adherent placentation was confirmed.

TLDR
Repeated cesarean delivery, high parity, and anteriorly low placental location are associated with severe outcome in case of placenta accreta and a genetic factor may serve as a cause for this condition.

TLDR
Therapy consisted of total abdominal hysterectomy in 38 patients and the predominant factor was an absent decidua, which was a previous cesarean section.

TLDR
Antepartum diagnosis of placenta previa percreta by MRI altered the usual diagnostic and surgical approach, diminishing blood loss and morbidity.
