Siddiq, Z., D’Alton, M.E., Friedman, A.M., Bateman, B.T., Ananth, C.V., Wright, J.D.
(Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2016;215(5):640.e1–640.e8) Peripartum hysterectomy can be a life-saving procedure for women with postpartum hemorrhage when other interventions have failed. The procedure itself, however, can be fatal with the risk of death ranging from 1% to 6%. Women with a suspected placenta accreta/percreta are considered to be at high-risk for peripartum hysterectomy, and are often referred to tertiary centers where this procedure is frequently performed.
