About this event

  • Date and time Fri 24 Apr 2020 from 5:30pm to 9:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Obstetrics and Gynaecology

In recent years, there has been a steady increase in the proportion deliveries by Caesarean section. This has in turn led to a sharp rise in the incidence of abnormally adherent placenta which is a significant cause of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Although there is a wide recognition of the clinical significance of this novel problem, our knowledge of its pathophysiology is still limited. There are also uncertainties about the optimal way to diagnose and treat abnormally adherent placenta.

This meeting provides a unique opportunity to learn from top experts in the field about pathophysiology of abnormal placentation. There will be ample opportunity for audience participation and discussion at this awareness raising event. 

The learning objectives are as follows:

  • To learn about more about the causes of abnormal placentation
  • To understand causes of abnormal placentation and learn about possible prevention strategies
  • To hear top experts discussing optimal organisation of surgical care for women with abnormally adherent placenta
