Conclusions A decision between radical and conservative strategies for placenta accreta must be made based on the degree of placental infiltration and other variables: the patient's hemodynamic status and her desire to remain fertile. In our opinion, cesarean hysterectomy remains the best therapeutic option to treat placenta percreta. Radical surgery should be done for poor availability of blood especially in rare blood types in other types of placenta accreta. Fullness in the retroperitoneal space should not be ligated except after excluding ureter dilatation and confirming hematoma by aspiration and disscetion. Megaurete...
