C Section Complications Vasa Previa
I am a healthy 32 years old. I have a history of two misscarriages and one premature infant at 32 weeks whodied from complications of congenital hemangioma at the base of skull and ruptured vasa previa. What are the odds of me having a healthy baby?
Don't Give Up!: You should get the advice of 2 specialists: a fertility specialist to check if you have any antibodies, coagulation disorders, hormone problems, fibroids, etc that are complicating your pregnancies. Just in case, you should consider consulting with a geneticist (it would really help if the miscarriages were genetically tested). ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I lost my baby at 39 weeks due to vasa previa. This was not detected in any ultrasounds. I wanted to know how difficult is it to detect this.?
Vasa Previa: This is a dangerous condition in pregnancy where the implantation of the umbilical cord is in the membranes of the placenta rather than in the placenta itself.Therefore if the membranes rupture as they do with the onset of labor, the rupture may occur at the site of the cord implantation and rupture the vessels feeding oxygen and blood flow to the fetus prior to its birth!fortunately its rare. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: In almost all cases, some cases though with partial type or just the tip of placenta reaching the cervix and go into labor proceed without that horrendous bleeding, very rare, in these days with all the advances in diagnostics, medications, anesthesia and surgery, no one would take chances, for the safety of the mother and baby , ...Read more

How dangerous is C-section with placenta previa? I have heard there is a high risk of bleeding out!?
Increased risk.: What you have heard is correct; exsanguination can occur in undiagnosed accreta/previa in small hospitals with inexperienced surgeon(s). Seek expert care if uou have placenta previa (including maternal-fetal medicine ultrasound and consultation), avoid all nsaids/sex/travel/unnecessary car rides/heavy lifting/straining/constipation and deliver in a large, tertiary care hospital [blood bank/icu]. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can full placenta previa actually resolve itself if diagnosed at around 12 weeks? It'd my 2nd preg& I am scheduled for c-section anyway.
Yes, >90% of time.: I don't even look at the placenta before 14-16 weeks because it is frequently previa without any significance clinically. If it covers the internal cervical os and overlaps by at least 2.5 cm in all directions (one inch) at the anatomy scan (18-22 weeks), then it shall persist as previa at delivery with 99% certainty. If it is >2 cm away from the os at term vaginal delivery is feasible 63% of time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anterior placenta previa with placental lake seen at 28w ultrasound, 2 D&Cs & no c-section hx. Any risk of placenta accreta? Best time to deliver?
Placenta Previa: Placenta previa occurs when the placenta is covering the opening of the cervix. Vaginal delivery is possible in mild cases of previa. Placenta accreta is a different condition where the placenta gets "stuck" to the uterus. While the risk of accreta increases when you have previa, that risk is low if you have never had a c-section before. Follow-up with your obstetrician regarding delivery dates. ...Read more
Doctor said that my placenta is attached near to my cervix. Is that means i can have placenta previa? Is that means c-section? I'm only 5months.
Too soon: At 5 months, it's too soon to say if your placenta will still be attached near your cervix when you are near to term. Sometimes, when the placenta is adjacent to or bordering the cervix at 5 months, the uterus grows and the placenta is far enough away at the time of delivery from the cervix that you can safely have a vaginal delivery! ...Read more
I had a 2nd csection 10 weeks ago (previous was 2 years ago). During surgery they found i had placenta previa & had to cut through the placenta. i h?
What is the question: I do not know what your situation was , but almost always placenta previa should be diagnosed before you had the csection by an ultrasound , all of my pts get at least 4 ultrasounds , the last one being 34-36 weeks which also checks the location of the placenta, because if u had a previous csection a placenta previa can often cause a placenat accreta which can cause big problems , glad u did ok. ...Read more
My 20wk us showed complete placenta previa, obgyn says it covers by 5cm. Will csection require general anesthesia? Is incision vertical?
Often missed: Vasa previa can be ruled out with a transabdominal ultrasound if the placental cord insertion site can be seen. Many routine scans do not look for this. But it is easy to identify. If it is an area of concern for you, your OB can tell you if it was looked at on your ultrasound. ...Read more
