Abstract

Placenta accreta is a life threatening obstetric condition that requires multidisciplinary approach for its management. Presently we document one such case of placenta accreta diagnosed intraoperatively during caesarean section where patient continued to bleed despite peripartum hysterectomy and eventually hemostasis was achieved by focused vault compression.
