Abstract

Placental percreta is a complication involving an abnormally deep placental attachment to the myometrium, resulting in obstetric hemorrhage and peripartum hysterectomy. A 38-year-old pregnant woman, with a history of 2 Cesarean births, myomectomy, 9 pregnancies, and 6 spontaneous abortions, was admitted after experiencing intrauterine fetal death, which occurred at 19 weeks gestation. The patient was referred to our institution after 8 days of unsuccessful medical treatment. Doppler ultrasonography and vacuum curettage revealed possible signs of abnormal placentation. Because of the unsuccessful separation of the placenta and massive bleeding, we used a Bakri Balloon to treat excessive bleeding during the acute phase, followed by the conservative administration of parenteral methotrexate to treat the spontaneous involution of the placenta at 7 weeks of conservative therapy. Bakri Balloon and methotrexate application to treat bleeding after curettage is a useful choice in placenta percreta and hemorrhage after abortion.
