Abstract
Placenta accreta is a rare but potentially lethal obstetric emergency due to massive hemorrhage, uterine perforation, and infection. Traditionally, hysterectomy was performed in the occurrence of serious hemorrhage. Currently, several conservative treatments including the use of uterine packing, leaving the placenta in situ, argon-beam coagulation, uterine artery ligation, administration of methotrexate, and uterine artery embolizations are introduced to preserve future reproductive potential. We present a patient with placenta accreta treated successfully with selective uterine artery embolization followed by methotrexate with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Placenta accreta, Selective uterine artery embolization, Methotrexate
