Placenta Accreta

Placenta AccretaPlacenta accreta is a rare condition that occurs when the placenta attaches itself too firmly to the wall of the uterus and cannot be removed after birth. Heavy bleeding often occurs after the delivery of the baby, and the usual treatment is removal of the uterus (a hysterectomy) as an emergency procedure.

This complication of pregnancy is more common in women who have had a previous caesarean section as the placenta tends to attaches abnormally to the caesarean scar in the uterus.
