Pathophysiology of abnormal placentation

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.
