Placental Abruption

Placental abruption is a very serious and potentially life-threatening condition to the fetus in which the placenta partially separates from the uterine wall during pregnancy. Many factors can cause Placental abruption, including:

  • Smoking
  • Trauma sustained in a car wreck, a fall or another accident
  • Previous uterine surgery
  • The location of the placenta (placental previa)
  • Untreated hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Uterine malformation

Regardless of the root cause, your healthcare provider should be on the lookout for placental abruption any time a pregnant woman has complaints of abdominal pain, bleeding or tenderness or contractions.

Doctors should perform an ultrasound and monitor the fetus’ condition for any signs of distress in order to properly conduct a differential diagnosis to rule out a serious complication such as an abrupted placenta. Basic precaution should be taken or the consequences can be devastating, including fetal brain damage resulting in cerebral palsy and even stillbirth.

If you know someone that has suffered a placental abruption that was misdiagnosed or improperly treated, consider consulting an experienced medical malpractice lawyer immediately.
