Abstract

The incidence of placenta accreta is increasing as a consequence of rising number of cesarean sections and advancing maternal age. A series of seven cases of placenta accreta observed in a short span of four months is being presented. Complication rates in the present series are post partum hemorrhage and major transfusion support (100%), peripartum hysterectomy (100%), ICU admission in four (57%), fever (14%) and bladder injury in one case (14%).
