Title: Massive adherent placenta, placenta percreta


Background: Adherent placentas including placenta accreta, increta and percreta are conditions where there is abnormal implanta­tion of all or part of the placenta on the myo­metrial wall. Massive adherent placenta has high morbidity and mortality rates in both mother and fetus. There is a positive corre­la­tion between the incidence of adherent placenta and the increase in cesarean section rates worldwide. Identification of risk factors, ante­natal diagnosis, accurate preoperative prepara­tion, multidisciplinary management, and appro­priate counseling are the main manage­ment of adherent placenta to reduce maternal morbidity.

Case Presentation: A woman, G5P3A1, age 36 years pregnant 37 weeks, complained loudly regularly since 6 hours before admission to hospital. There is a history of CS as much as 3x with indications of 2x Premature rupture of the membranes and uterine rupture, as well as a history of curettage (1x). Physical examination showed that the general condition was good, and composting, vital signs were within normal limits. Abdomen palpable single fetus, intra­uterine, elongated, head presentation, left back, moderate his (+), FHR 150 x/minute. The results of prenatal sonography examination showed that neither placenta previa nor massive adherent placenta was found. The preoperative diagnosis was inparticular stage I latent phase with a history of SC 3 times.

Results: An emergency Caesarean section was performed. Durante surgery showed severe adhesions of the placenta, uterine wall and bladder. The diagnosis of placenta percreta was confirmed, uterine resection was performed on the perreta section, hysterography as well as adhesiolysis and MOW sterilization. The results of the PA examination support the diagnosis of placenta percreta.

Conclusion: Massive adherent placenta, pla­centa percreta was not diagnosed in this case because there were no clinical features or pre­natal sonography that supported the diagnosis of placenta percreta. A history of trauma to the uterus due to uterine rupture, history of CS and curettage were risk factors for placenta percreta in this case. The incidence rate of placenta per­creta with a history of SC 3 times without placenta previa on the previous sonographic examina­tion was 0.1%. Operative management to manage bleeding and post operative care have been carried out according to the procedure so as to avoid mortality.
