Surgical management of placenta accreta: to leave or remove the placenta?


PMID 24373590

Abstract

Abnromalities of placentation, including placenta accreta, represent a major source of morbidity and mortality among women. Traditional management consists of peripartum hysterectomy at the time of delivery, although more conservative treatments have also been developed recently. In this review we describe the available literature describing the operative approach and considerations for management of women with placenta accreta.
