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?

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

Sporting Activities (Definition)

It may be easier to exercise earlier in your pregnancy than during the last three months (third trimester) of pregnancy. Choosing safe exercises for you and your baby is important because some positions, as your weight and balance change, may become uncomfortable or have potentially harmful effects. After 20 weeks of pregnancy, you should not do exercises that require lying flat on your back, because this position may make ...Read more

Posteria placenta @9weeks- then placenta previa. @ 17 weeks? Will it move again?

Yes, possible!: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri. Follow w/ US. ...Read more

Placenta tear at 18 weeks with history of placenta abruption. Should I be concerned?

Not necessarily: Since the placenta cannot be directly examined, I am guessing that they are seeing an apparent collection of blood behind the placenta on ultrasound. These "subchorionic hematomas" are actually fairly common, are usually limited, and are not normally clinically significant. The chance of an evolving abruption is small but your history increases your risk. Monitor it and hopefully it is stable. ...Read more

Ischemic stroke at 90, pelvic fracture and cerebral contusion at 92. If risk of bleeding from falling > risk of tia/stroke from clot, baby aspirin ok?

Judgement: There's no answer to your question. No one has collected a series of 5, 000 people like you and tested the two options. This is where having a doctor whom you trust and who knows your history and all about you makes all the difference. (your question exemplifies why computers are never going to be able to practice medicine!). ...Read more

Can placenta accreta be missed at delivery?

Can placenta accreta be missed at delivery?

Very definitely: Unfortunately, placenta accreta is often diagnosed at the time post delivery when a cotyledon(plug) of placenta is missing or the placenta itself does not detach normally. At that point, aggressive measures to 'detach" the placenta may result in massive hemorrhage and the resultant post apocalyptic diagnosis of placenta accreta. ...Read more
