Abstract

Placenta percreta is a rare pregnancy disorder in which the placenta penetrates the uterine myometrium and can invade surrounding organs. Because the rate of cesarean sections is increasing in developed countries, the incidence of placenta percreta is also rising. This condition significantly increases the risk of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality, and is currently the most common indication for peripartum hysterectomy. Multidisciplinary management in a specialized center capable of providing massive transfusions can improve outcomes for the mother and baby. This team should include a surgeon specialized in pelvic surgery, an anesthesiologist experienced in obstetrics, a skilled urologist, a neonatologist, a blood bank team capable of administering multiple blood products, and an intensive care facility where the patient can be monitored. In this report, we present the case of a patient with preoperatively undiagnosed placenta percreta and discuss the relevant management methods. We also discuss the relevant obstetric and anesthetic management methods, as well as diagnostic and transfusion protocols.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 03 September 2012.
All research outputs
#17,664,478
of 22,675,759 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Women's Health
#576
of 762 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#125,747
of 170,322 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Women's Health
#14
of 22 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,675,759 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 762 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 11.7. This one is in the 22nd percentile – i.e., 22% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 170,322 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 22 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
