A 37-year-old G2P1 female presented for Cesarean Section. Approximately two months prior to delivery, US findings were suggestive of placenta accreta. However repeat US one month prior to delivery showed an overwhelmingly normal placenta interface and lack of overt signs of accreta. A multidisciplinary conference was held to determine delivery timing and mode of delivery. Patient was scheduled for a CS at 36w. After delivery of the fetus, placenta accreta was noted by the surgeon. Patient was converted to general anesthesia and total abdominal hysterectomy was required. In this case report, we will review preoperative and intra-operative planning for suspected placenta accreta
