  • Abstract


    Although the risk factors for placenta accreta are well established, the underlying mechanisms leading to abnormal placental adhesions are less well understood. This study was undertaken to evaluate the histology and histopathology of the lower uterine segment in CS in a trial to understand the possible pathogenesis of placenta accreta.
