Placental abruption: Placental abruption is a complication of pregnancy, wherein the placental lining separates from the uterus of the mother prior to delivery. Signs and symptoms include sudden-onset abdominal pain, uterine contractions and vaginal bleeding. Treatment depends on the amount of blood loss and the status of the fetus and may range from monitoring to immediate delivery.
