Laparoscopic management of placenta increta after late first-trimester dilation and evacuation manifesting as an unusual uterine mass.
Summary of "Laparoscopic management of placenta increta after late first-trimester dilation and evacuation manifesting as an unusual uterine mass."
Placenta increta is a rare and potentially life-threatening complication of pregnancy. The initial symptoms are generally vaginal bleeding during difficult placental removal in the third trimester. However, placenta increta may complicate first- and early second-trimester pregnancy loss. The diagnosis may be difficult during early pregnancy because the lesion is difficult to identify. Herein is reported the case of a woman with a diagnosis of placenta increta that caused prolonged bleeding after a late first-trimester abortion and manifested as an unusual lower segment uterine mass. Management included laparoscopy, and the placental tissue was completely removed successfully and uneventfully.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A placenta that fails to be expelled after BIRTH of the FETUS. A PLACENTA is retained when the UTERUS fails to contract after the delivery of its content, or when the placenta is abnormally attached to the MYOMETRIUM.
The production of red blood cells (ERYTHROCYTES). In humans, erythrocytes are produced by the YOLK SAC in the first trimester; by the liver in the second trimester; by the BONE MARROW in the third trimester and after birth. In normal individuals, the erythrocyte count in the peripheral blood remains relatively constant implying a balance between the rate of erythrocyte production and rate of destruction.
