Background/ Objectives: To study predisposing factors, management options, maternal & fetal outcome of placenta previa.
Methods: The present study was carried out on 30 diagnosed cases of placenta previa admitted in Padmashree. Dr. D. Y. Patil Hospital and Research centre, Pimpri, Pune from 2008 to 2011.
Results: In our study it was found that advancing age, parity, previous cesarean section, abortion were associated with placenta previa. Maternal morbidity and surgical interventions were significantly associated with amount of blood loss and type of placenta previa (P<0.0001). In our study perinatal mortality and morbidity was mainly due to prematurity. Expectant management was significantly associated with better maternal and fetal outcome indicated by APGAR score (<0.0001).
Conclusion: Expectant management, good neonatal care and timely surgical intervention improve maternal and perinatal outcome in placenta previa.
