By Carlos Briceño Pérez, Fredy Alaña, Liliana Briceño Sanabria, Juan Briceño Sanabria and Carlos Briceño Sanabria

Abstract

La placenta adherida al miometrio es muy rara. Varía entre 1:500 y 1:93 000 partos. La placenta percreta es el tipo menos común. Es importante porque las complicaciones pueden ser mortales. La ruptura uterina anterior es más frecuente que la posterior. En la literatura inglesa, entre 1899 y 1999, sólo se reportaron menos de 50 casos con hemoperitoneo. En Venezuela se han descrito 6 placentas percretas. En esta nota clínica se reporta un caso de placenta percreta con rotura uterina posterior, hemoperitoneo e invasión a epiplón.<br>Placenta acreta is very uncommon. It varies between 1:500 and 1:93 000 deliveries. Placenta percreta is the less common type. It is important because complications may be fatals. Anterior uterine rupture is more frequent than posterior. In English literature, between 1899 and 1999, only less than 50 cases of hemoperitoneum were reported. In Venezuela, 6 percreta placentas had been described. This clinical note is a case report of percreta placenta with posterior uterine rupture, hemoperitoneum and epiploon invasion
