OBJECTIVE: To report a case of successful delayed removal of a placenta accreta first treated conservatively. Secondary infectious complications can occur after conservative management in cases of placenta accreta, most often leading to hysterectomy. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: A French teaching hospital. PATIENT(S): A 33-year-old woman. INTERVENTION(S): A healthy 33-year-old woman underwent Cesarean section for her first pregnancy. Diagnosis of placenta accreta was made at ultrasound scanning for her second pregnancy. She was first treated conservatively. Hysterectomy was planned 3 months after conservative treatment because of sepsis attributed to uterine retention. (Hysterotomy was first realized.)-?? MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Uterine conservation. RESULT(S): The placenta was easily and successfully removed with no subsequent bleeding. The uterus was sutured and conserved. CONCLUSION(S): In cases of delayed sepsis because of uterine retention after conservative treatment for placenta accreta, when medical treatment remains unsuccessful, manual removal of the placenta should be attempted. This approach might allow improved uterine conservation rates in women with placenta accreta treated conservatively.
