The rate of cesarean delivery in the United States is at an all-time high. With the increased rate of primary and repeated cesarean delivery, a corresponding increase in the occurrence rate of placenta previa and placenta accreta has been observed. The purpose of this case report is to discuss the obstetric disorder of placenta previa with the concurrent occurrence of placenta accreta. A review of the actual management and course of a patient undergoing elective cesarean delivery with the aforementioned concurrent disorders will be undertaken. This will be followed by a general discussion related to the management of an obstetric patient undergoing elective cesarean delivery with known placenta previa and placenta accreta.
