Abstract

Placenta increta complicated pregnancy in a woman with a history of endometrial resection. Placentation in women with prior endometrial ablation carries a high risk for placenta accreta, increta and percreta. Contraceptive measures must be implemented after endometrial ablation and pursued until proven menopause, even in women who develop amenorrhoea postoperatively.
