Expectant management of retained abnormally adherent placenta complicated by uterine prolapse after vaginal delivery.

Nnabuike C Ngene, Amon Siveregi,

The placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) describes invasion and adherence of the placenta onto or beyond the myometrium. Prenatal imaging improves management outcomes. In low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), however, the unavailability of ultrasonography in some health facilities delays the diagnosis, particularly if the prenatal period is asymptomatic. Following vaginal delivery, ... Read more >>
