Doan’s mother, in Vi Thuy district, Hau Giang province, was taken to Can Tho Central General Hospital two days ago. Doctors diagnose pregnant women with Percreta obstetrical placental complications, a critical condition but by all means must retain the uterus to ensure the health and well-being of the patient for the patient.

When the operation took the child, the doctor discovered that the implant was encroached on the woman’s bladder, the blood vessel was proliferating, the bladder was very tightly attached to the placenta, the invasive placenta was attached to the invasive uterine muscle ligament … surgical dissection has been removed, bladder recovery stage; uterine artery constriction.

3.1 kg baby boy was born healthy, doctors also successfully preserve the uterus for pregnant women. Patients must receive 8 units of blood preparations.

Dr. Lam Duc Tam said that each of the Percreta teeth is very heavy. In normal state, after birth, the placenta will automatically separate from the wall of the uterus and push out. In the case of a placental comb, the placenta attaches tightly to the uterine muscles and the woman is at risk of having a hysterectomy.

“Intermittent tooth comb is the cause of postpartum haemorrhage, hemostatic disorders, or even death,” said Dr. Tam.
