Placenta percreta was diagnosed antenatally in two patients in the same university medical school and conservative treatment was planned. Both uterine arteries were embolized. In one patient, embolization preceded cesarean section and in the other, embolization was done immediately after operation. In each case, the placenta was left in situ and disappeared 5-6 months after delivery.
