Abstract
Placenta increta is a condition characterized by abnormal adherence of the placenta owing to entire or partial absence of the decidua basalis. It is generally recognized during difficult placental removal at the time of delivery. It is a life-threatening complication of pregnancy due to massive hemorrhage, uterine perforation, and infection and thus often a hysterectomy is required. We review two cases of placenta increta conservative managed successfully by selective uterine artery embolization.
Key Words: Placenta increta, Conservative, Selective uterine artery embolization
