  • Patients with placenta accreta have abnormally adherent placentas and are at risk for massive hemorrhage at delivery. We report 2 cases of cesarean hysterectomy in patients with placenta accreta. These patients were cared for by a multidisciplinary team consisting of a maternal fetal medicine specialist, gynecologic oncologist, anesthesiologist, neonatologist, interventional radiologist, and urologist. Favorable maternal and fetal outcomes resulted from the use of this team.
