How often does placenta accreta go undiagnosed even after a csection delivery?

How often does placenta accreta go undiagnosed even after a csection delivery?

Placenta accreta: A previously undiagnosed placenta accrete may be diagnosed at the time of a cesarean section. This would occur when the OB is trying to remove the placenta but cannot because it is attached (accreta). On the other hand, if the placenta detaches easily, the uterine cavity is always explored so it would be rare to have an attached placenta left behind but a focal placenta accrete could be missed. ...Read more

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 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.

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

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 more

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.

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 more

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

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
