Crucial 3-hour operation to remove placenta and uterus
Riyadh: A medical team at Al Darb General Hospital (southern Saudi Arabia) rescued a pregnant woman from severe bleeding that was almost fatal for her fetus.
Saudi Health stated that the woman arrived at the emergency department on Tuesday, 18th September, suffering from acute bleeding. On the spot, she was taken under the diagnosis process, ultrasound imaging, and MRI; all showed an axile placenta growing deeply into the uterus wall, causing the bleeding.
The medical team decided to perform an immediate surgery to remove parts of the uterus, including the placenta, and parts of the bladder as the placenta grew into it. After three hours, the surgery ended successfully.
The woman is admitted into the recovery unit with her baby until they’re healthy enough to be discharged.
