In brief: Placental abruption

Abruptio placentae is defined as the premature separation of the placenta from the uterus.
As a significant cause of third-trimester bleeding, it is associated with fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality. Placental abruption must be considered whenever bleeding is encountered in the second half of pregnancy.
