"when It Rains, It Pours" - Hemodynamic Management Of Concurrent Uterine Rupture And Placenta Accreta
A 35 y/o female G5P1212 at 35w5d with a history of sickle cell disease and prior classical cesarean section presented to OB triage with contractions and acutely decompensated requiring C-section. The case was complicated by uterine rupture and placenta accreta leading to severe hemorrhaging. Vasopressor support was required and patient was admitted to the SICU. After one week in the hospital, the mother and baby were discharged without complication. This case discusses the hemodynamic management of obstetric hemorrhage in the setting of concurrent uterine and placental pathologies.
