Introduction: Placenta accreta (PA) is defined as the penetration of trophoblastic tissue into the myometrium. We aimed to report a case of PA which was successfully managed with partial segmental resection of uterus.
Case Presentation: A 23 years old women gravida 2, parity 1, referred to our hospital for placental retention after vaginal delivery. The intraoperative exploration showed that the placenta remained in the right part of the uterine. According to these findings, the initial diagnosis was PA. The placenta and the uterine wall were removed in one piece. The uterine wall was reconstructed by vicyrl no:1 in a three layer closure. Bilateral uterine artery ligation was performed in order to prevent excess uterus bleeding. Then, modified b-lynch suture was performed for prophylaxis of atonia.
Conclusion: Nowadays, conserving the uterus, avoiding the possibility of hemorrhage and making future pregnancies possible are the main objectives of conservative treatments in PA. Partial segmental uterine resection is an alternative, conservative and acceptable management option in selected cases of PA.
