Abstract

Postpartum unscarred uterine ruptures are exceedingly rare. A 29-year-old multipara with a retained placenta presented hypovolemic shock. An emergency laparotomy revealed that her uterus was ruptured where the placenta adhered to. Pathological examination confirmed the placental accreta that could be a risk factor for postpartum unscarred uterine rupture.
