ACRETA INCRETA PERCRETA PDF

Placenta accreta occurs when all or part of the placenta attaches abnormally to the myometrium the muscular layer of the uterine wall. Three grades of abnormal placental attachment are defined according to the depth of attachment and invasion into the muscular layers of the uterus:. Because of abnormal attachment to the myometrium, placenta accreta is associated with an increased risk of heavy bleeding at the time of attempted vaginal delivery. The need for transfusion of blood products is frequent, and surgical removal of the uterus hysterectomy is sometimes required to control life-threatening bleeding.

Three variants of abnormally invasive placentation are recognised: placenta accreta, in which placental villi invade the surface of the myometrium; placenta increta, in which placental villi extend into the myometrium; and placenta percreta, where the villi penetrate through the myometrium to the uterine serosa and may invade adjacent organs, such as the bladder.

Placenta accreta, increta, or percreta is associated with major pregnancy complications, including life-threatening maternal haemorrhage, large-volume blood transfusion, and peripartum hysterectomy. The existing literature consists predominately of case reports, and studies undertaken using retrospective review of medical records, over a number of years in a single or small number of tertiary-care institutions. The aims of this study were to prospectively identify a national population-based cohort of women with placenta accreta, increta, or percreta to describe the current management of this condition in the UK, and the associated outcomes for women and their infants, in order to inform future practice guidelines.

Cases included all women identified as having placenta accreta, increta or percreta, defined as either placenta accreta, increta, and percreta diagnosed histologically following hysterectomy, or post-mortem, or an abnormally adherent placenta, requiring active management, including conservative approaches where the placenta is left in situ.

Data collection forms were then sent to the clinicians who reported a case to confirm the diagnosis and request further information concerning potential risk factors, management, and outcomes. All data requested were anonymous, and up to five reminders were sent if data collection forms were not returned. Data were double-entered into a customised database. Information on the women's year of birth and expected date of delivery was used to identify duplicate case reports, and cases were reviewed to ensure that they met the case definition.

Of the 20 unsuspected cases who had both placenta praevia and a previous caesarean, one was noted to have no features of morbidly adherent placenta on ultrasound, and one was noted to have an uncertain diagnosis at MRI; the remaining 18 did not appear to have had imaging to specifically look for morbidly adherent placenta.

No other significant differences were found between the antenatally suspected and unsuspected women in terms of the following characteristics: maternal age, ethnicity, socio-economic group, body mass index BMI , smoking status, gender of infant, or whether the women had a multiple pregnancy, an IVF pregnancy, pregnancy inducted hypertension or pre-eclampsia, other previous uterine surgery, or previous uterine perforation data not shown. Although they were less likely to have other therapy ies to treat haemorrhage, there was no significant difference in their median estimated total blood loss, the proportion who received a blood transfusion, or the proportion who subsequently had a hysterectomy.

Peripartum management and maternal outcomes by whether placenta accreta, increta, or percreta was suspected antenatally. Placenta accreta, increta, or percreta cases, according to whether they were suspected of having this condition antenatally, whether an attempt was made to remove any of the placenta around the time of delivery, and whether a hysterectomy was subsequently performed.

This woman had an attempt to remove her placenta around the time of delivery and did not have a hysterectomy performed. Fifty-eight hysterectomies were performed following an attempt to remove the placenta, five of which were performed in women who had part and four of which were performed in women who had their entire placenta left after the attempt.

Another 21 hysterectomies were performed in women who had no attempt to remove any of their placenta around the time of delivery. Peripartum management and maternal outcomes of women with placenta accreta, increta, or percreta, by whether an attempt made to remove any of the placenta around time of delivery.

Five of the women who had no attempt to remove any of their placenta were treated with methotrexate: three of these women were amongst those who subsequently had a delayed hysterectomy, one was amongst those whose placenta was documented to have completely resorbed, and one was amongst those still awaiting complete resorption. Of the women who were noted to have had part of their placenta left in place after an attempt to remove it, two were treated with methotrexate: both of these women were amongst those whose placenta was documented to have completely resorbed.

The remaining women gave birth to a total of infants singletons and eight twins. There were no stillbirths and two early neonatal deaths amongst the infants, equating to a perinatal mortality rate of Although this was double the national rate of 7. This prospective population-based study has two main findings. Firstly, in women with a final diagnosis of placenta increta or percreta, antenatal diagnosis is associated with reduced levels of haemorrhage and a reduced need for blood transfusion.

Secondly, making no attempt to remove any of the placenta, either in an attempt to conserve the uterus or prior to hysterectomy, is associated with reduced levels of haemorrhage and a reduced need for blood transfusion.

A major strength of our study is its prospective population-based design, not relying on routinely coded data to ascertain cases. In order to fully capture all cases of placenta accreta, increta, and percreta, including cases managed conservatively, we used a case definition that included clinically as well as pathologically defined cases.

We cannot therefore be certain that all cases would have been pathologically confirmed; however, we restricted the inclusion of clinically defined cases to those requiring active management. It is thus unlikely that significant numbers of false-positive cases have been included.

Another potential limitation is that we cannot be certain that we have ascertained all cases, despite the presence of several reporting clinicians in each hospital, and the active monthly nature of UKOSS case reporting.

Antenatal diagnosis of placenta accreta, increta, or percreta allows for early delivery planning, including the availability of a multi-professional team, discussion of the surgical approach to delivery, preparation for invasive management, including hysterectomy if necessary, as well as ensuring sufficient blood products and other supporting therapies are readily available.

This association may be the result of observed differences in the management of antenatally diagnosed and undiagnosed women: women diagnosed antenatally in our study were more likely than those without antenatal suspicion to have preventative therapies for haemorrhage, and were less likely to have an attempt to remove their placenta. Regardless, our study also demonstrates that more than half of women with placenta accreta, increta, or percreta have a hysterectomy; early diagnosis will allow for the appropriate planning of anaesthetic and surgical resources in the event this is required, and adequate counselling of the women involved.

Our study only collected information on the antenatally suspected cases that were confirmed pathologically or clinically, so we cannot evaluate the reliability of such features for diagnosing placenta accreta, increta, or percreta; however, previous studies suggest that currently there is no completely sensitive and specific antenatal diagnostic technique for the condition.

Debate remains over the optimal management of placenta accreta, increta, and percreta: if the placenta fails to separate after delivery, leaving it in place and proceeding with either a hysterectomy or conservative management, rather than trying to separate it, is currently recommended by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists RCOG 18 ; the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists 19 currently make no specific recommendations regarding attempted placental separation.

Our study supports the RCOG recommendation, with the finding that making no attempt to remove any of the placenta around the time of delivery, in an attempt to conserve the uterus or prior to hysterectomy, is associated with reduced levels of haemorrhage and a reduced need for blood transfusion. We did not observe any significant differences between the characteristics of women who did and did not have an attempt to remove their placenta that could have offered an alternative explanation for this association.

Our study suggests that currently only around a quarter of women with placenta accreta, increta, or percreta have no attempt to remove their placenta. Given the limitation of antenatal diagnosis with the possibility of false positives, however, there may be a case for gently trying to remove the placenta before proceeding with a hysterectomy, when there are no obvious signs of placental invasion.

Conservative management of placenta accreta, increta, and percreta, involving leaving the placenta in place around the time of delivery, with the aim of preserving the uterus, is particularly contentious. Only 16 women in our study appear to have had no attempt to remove their placenta, in a clear attempt to preserve their uterus.

This highlights one of the concerns about conservative management: that women may continue to be at risk of severe bleeding for several months after delivery. Another concern about conservative management is that it may increase a woman's risk of infection. Sepsis was only noted in three women in our study, none of whom were managed conservatively; however, the small number of women managed conservatively makes it impossible to infer that there is a genuinely low risk of sepsis, and further research is needed to address this.

Similarly, very few women were managed with methotrexate: we thus have no clear evidence of any added benefit of using this approach. In women with a final diagnosis of placenta increta or percreta, an antenatal diagnosis is associated with reduced levels of haemorrhage and a reduced need for blood transfusion, possibly because antenatally diagnosed women are more likely to have preventative therapies for haemorrhage, and are less likely to have an attempt made to remove their placenta.

Additionally, more than half of women with placenta accreta, increta, or percreta have a hysterectomy; early diagnosis will allow for the appropriate planning of anaesthetic and surgical resources in the event this is required, as well as adequate counselling of the women involved. However, many cases of placenta accreta, increta, and percreta are currently not diagnosed antenatally, despite the presence of risk factors.

Further research is needed to establish the most sensitive and specific antenatal diagnostic techniques. Women with placenta accreta, increta, or percreta who have no attempt to remove any of their placenta, with the aim of conserving their uterus, or prior to hysterectomy, have reduced levels of haemorrhage and a reduced need for blood transfusion, supporting policies that recommend this practice.

Placenta accreta spectrum including accreta, increta, and percreta is one of the scariest conditions that obstetricians will face. As a relatively infrequent condition, most data regarding placenta accreta are derived from small retrospective case series obtained in single institutions.

Thus, the optimal management remains uncertain. In this issue of BJOG , Fitzpatrick and colleagues report on women with placenta accreta spectrum in a prospective population-based study in the UK, confirming the dramatic morbidity associated with the condition. Importantly, they noted that antenatal diagnosis was associated with reduced levels of haemorrhage and a reduced need for blood transfusion. Another key observation was that women who had a hysterectomy with no attempt to remove the placenta experienced reduced haemorrhage and a lower rate of blood transfusion than those for whom placental removal was attempted.

This is especially impressive, as women with no attempt at placental removal had more severe placental invasion than those with attempts at placental removal.

These findings underscore the importance of antenatal diagnosis. Strikingly, 20 of the unsuspected cases had BOTH a previous caesarean delivery and a previous placenta praevia. Such risk factors should prompt clinicians to refer women for evaluation and counselling for possible placenta accreta. In addition to avoiding placental removal, antenatal diagnosis allows for the use of other strategies intended to minimise haemorrhage.

The rate of placenta accreta in this population-based study was 1. This may be because of the historically lower rate of caesarean delivery in the UK compared with the US. As the rate of caesarean delivery in the UK has been increasing, it will be of interest to see whether the rate of accreta increases as well. Also, it is crucial to investigate the possibility that differences in caesarean techniques in the UK and US contribute to different rates of accreta.

We congratulate Drs Fitzpatrick and colleagues for their important contribution to our understanding of the accreta spectrum. Clinicians should be alert to risk factors for accreta and refer such women for antenatal evaluation and counseling. Ideally, women with suspected accreta should undergo scheduled delivery in a centre with expertise and experience in the management of accreta.

In most cases, patients should have a planned caesarean hysterectomy, with no attempts at placental removal. Having a well-stocked blood bank is a must. In addition, there are numerous unanswered questions regarding the optimal management of accreta. It is only through more prospective multicentre efforts such as that completed by the UKOSS that we will successfully decrease the morbidity of placenta accreta.

Finally, these data illustrate the need to redouble our work to safely reduce caesarean delivery rates. National Center for Biotechnology Information , U. Published online Aug 7. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer.

Placenta Accreta

In a normal pregnancy the placenta is supposed to attach itself to the inside wall of the uterus above or beside the fetus. Placenta accreta is an uncommon pregnancy condition that occurs when the attachment of the placenta into the uterine wall is too deep. The condition is medically classified as placenta accrete, placenta increta, or placenta percreta depending on the depth and severity of the placental attachment into the uterine wall. This is a relatively rare obstetric complication. Placenta accrete, increta, or percreta only occurs in 1 out of every 2, pregnancies. Placenta accreta, increta and percreta are sort of like degrees of severity like 1 st degree, 2 nd degree, 3 rd degree.

Normally, the placenta grows onto the upper part of the uterus and stays there until your baby is born. During the last stage of labor , the placenta separates from the wall of the uterus, and your contractions help push it into the vagina birth canal.
