Abstract

The patient presented here delivered at 32 weeks' gestation after expectant management of spontaneous preterm membrane rupture. She had an unusually located placenta accreta at the left cornu that required a hysterectomy for treatment. The type of abnormal placentation and the laparoscopic approach to her surgery were unique features of her care.
