Management of Placenta Previa | Diagnosis, Complications & Management | APH
Placenta Previa can be best diagnosed by (TVS) Transvaginal sonography which is safe & accurate.
The complication associated with this disease for mother & fetus is as follows-
– Preterm Labour
– Postpartum hemorrhage
– Cord prolapse
– More operative interference
– Retained placenta
– IUGR (Intrauterine growth retardation)
– LBW (Low birth weight)
– IUD (Intrauterine death)
– Congenitally malformed fetus
– Birth injuries
– It depends on fetal maturity, bleeding, and maternal health.
