I-50: Gray Scale and Doppler Features of Retained Products of Conception and Placenta Accrete

Postpartum bleeding is a component of the normal physiologic process that occurs after delivery or miscarriage. Normally, bleeding decreases over the first postpartum week. When bleeding is excessive and uterine atony has been excluded as a cause, the next most common cause of postpartum bleeding is retained products of conception (RPOC). The placenta usually constitutes the majority of RPOC, and, because of its highly vascular connection to the uterus, it provides a conduit for continued bleeding. Although accurate diagnosis of RPOC is a challenge both clinically and radiologically, it is important for guiding proper management. In this article, we discuss the placental development; the clinical, pathologic, gray scale,and Doppler diagnosis of RPOC; and some potential pitfalls that may mimic RPOC.In this article diagnosis of placenta creta will be discuss.
