Author(s): Insherah Mansour and Dr. Hala Mousa
Abstract: Placenta previa is an obstetric complication defined as a placenta that implants near or over the cervical os. With increased frequency, leading to a rise in cesarean section delivery worldwide, it is worthy of note that the Saudi literature shows a shortage of data about its incidence rate and outcome. This study aims to determine the incidence of placenta previa in a retrospective cohort of women enrolled in Madinah Maternity and Children Hospital in Madinah city, Saudi Arabia, for two years 2016 and 2017. A retrospective cohort study was designed and included all women enrolled in the studied hospital during the stipulated time. The total incidence rate of placenta previa was 0.6% during the study years. In conclusion, the incidence of placenta previa in this study was comparable with results reported from previous similar studies, showing relationships with high maternal age, cesarian section, and maternal outcomes.
