2022 Stronger - P113 - It Takes a Village to Improve Placenta Accreta Outcomes - On Demand
Placenta accreta spectrum disorders, which involve abnormal invasion of the uterine myometrium by villous tissue, are significant contributors to maternal mortality and morbidity due to excessive blood loss and organ injury. In April 2018, we formed a core team of more than 30 individuals from seven clinical departments to create a standardized protocol based on best practices, streamline our services, and improve the process through efficient communication and continuous quality control. This approach decreased our maternal morbidity rate by 70%, intraoperative blood loss by 50% and the need for blood component replacement therapy by 68%.
