Author(s): Dr. Prativa Sadangi and Dr. Kumari Ranjeeta
Abstract: Placenta percreta (PP) is a potentially life-threatening condition. When PP is complicated by bladder invasion, mortality rates have been estimated as high as 9.5% and 24% for mother and child, respectively. Early diagnosis allows for appropriate antenatal care and accordingly surgical planning and management. Herein, we are going to present a case report, in which a women G3P2L2 with previous 2 caesarean section with pre-term gestation was diagnosed with placenta accreta, but intra-operatively it was placenta percreta with bladder invasion. Patient was managed successfully by doing subtotal hysterectomy. Any pregnant patient with previous history of caesarean section we should be suspicious of placenta accrete spectrum, hence should be managed in a tertiary care center with a multidisciplinary approach, and with earliest possible involvement of the urologist in decision-making.
