We retrospectively analyzed the clinical significance of placental position in patients with placental abruption by comparing cases in which the placenta was implanted on the anterior wall of the uterus (n=17) and those in which the placenta was on the posterior wall (n=12). There were no significant differences in clinical features of patients or pregnancy outcomes between the two groups. In this study, all patients with an anterior-wall placenta received a diagnosis of placental abruption prenatally, whereas only 8 patients (67%, p=0.01) with posterior-wall placenta received a diagnosis of placental abruption prenatally. Serious consideration should be given to the diagnosis of placental abruption in patients with a posterior-wall placenta.
