Abstract

Severe hemorrhage during delivery may lead to complications if the urinary bladder is involved in cases of placenta percreta. If placenta percreta and its complications are discovered during delivery, they might be able to be successfully managed. However, in this situation, the mother can lose her uterus to stop the severe bleeding to save the mother’s life. Therefore, early detection of placenta percreta is highly recommended. We present here a case of urinary bladder involvement in placenta percreta, which later led to hydronephrosis. We discuss possible steps to save the uterus for future conception based on findings in our patient.
