Abnormally invasive placenta (AIP), which includes placenta accreta, increta, and percreta, is associated with serious complications, especially severe postpartum hemorrhage. Several studies have reported an increased prevalence of this condition in conjunction with the increasing cesarean delivery rates in many countries. Most previous studies of AIP have focused only on maternal morbidity and have been limited by small sample sizes. The aim of this population-based Australian study was to examine both maternal and neonatal outcomes after AIP using data from a 10-year period.
