Unexpected intraoperative recognition of placenta accreta spectrum
Keywords:Placenta accreta spectrum, Pregnancy, Feto-maternal outcome, LSCS, Cesarean hysterectomy
The worldwide incidence of placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) is increasing day by day, mostly due to the increasing trends in cesarean section rates. Although standard ultrasound is a reliable and primary tool for the diagnosis of placenta accreta, the absence of ultrasound findings does not preclude the diagnosis of placenta accreta. Therefore, clinical evaluation of risk factors is equally essential for the prediction of abnormal placental invasion. The accurate and timely diagnosis of placenta accreta is important to improve the feto-maternal outcome.
