Placental acretism is an adherencial pathology associated with a high maternal morbidity and mortality rates. Antepartum diagnosis is essential to plan a proper management and reduce serious complications. Risk factors in these patients include prior cesarean sections, uterine scars and placenta previa. Second level ultrasonography may detect placental acretism with high sensitivity and specificity; magnetic resonance imaging may play a complimentary role in the diagnosis of placental acretism when ultrasonographic findings are non-conclusive, specially when determining miometrium invasion in placental acretism (incretism, percretism)...

Acute puerperal inversion is both rare and serious (1/20000 deliveries in France) and may lead to significant morbidity and mortality. Outcome depends on the degree of uterine bleeding and the presence or not of a state of shock. Acute puerperal inversion occurs at the time of placental delivery. Four stages are usually described by degree of exteriorization of the uterus. The diagnosis is essentially clinical. The predisposing factors are hypotonic uterus, fundal implantation of the placenta and placental acretas...

Shock is one of the most difficult problems an obstetrician can face. Hemorrhage is the main reason of shock. A descriptive and retrospective research was conducted at Instituto Nacional de Perinatología, from January 1992 to May 1996, including all patients admitted to the intensive care unit with diagnosis of shock. There were found 90 cases with diagnosis of shock, 82 were hipovolemic, and 8 cases had the septic kind of shock. The average of age was 32.2 years, with a gestational age between 6.2 to 41.4 weeks ...

Twelve hundred nineteen maternal deaths occurring from 1957 through 1966 in the State of California have been reviewed by the Maternal Mortality Committee of the California Medical Association and the Bureau of Maternal and Child Welfare of the State of California. In 56 of these deaths the underlying causes were due to disorders of placental separation and placental bed hemostasis. Each of these 56 cases has been analyzed. Profiles of characteristics of patients dying from placenta previa, placenta abruptio, and uterine atony are given...

Placenta acreta is a rare complication of pregnancy characterized by abnormal placental adherence. In its extreme form, percreta, rupture of the uterus, and profound hemorrhage may occur. Aggressive resuscitation and early surgery provide the most favorable outcome. Conservative management plays an important role in individual cases where fertility must be preserved or the operative time needs to be reduced to a minimum.
