Vascular Control by Infrarenal Aortic Cross-Clamping in Placenta Accreta
Spectrum Disorders: description of technique and review of 31 cases
We describe a novel surgical technique of 31 patients with
histopathologically–confirmed placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) disorders
managed by a multidisciplinary team using prophylactic infrarenal
abdominal aortic cross-clamping technique during cesarean hysterectomy.
We conclude that this new surgical procedure is a safe and effective
technique to reduce operative blood loss. Hopefully, our pioneer work
will stimulate others to develop protocols assessing this innovative
technique to improve surgical outcome of PAS disorders.
