Abprutio placenta (or) Placental abruption [Premature separation of placenta]

Abruptio placenta is the premature separation of placenta from the uterus that usually happens in the second of half of the pregnancy. Exact cause is unknown but there are some risk factors associated with it. Smoking, alcohol consumption during pregnancy, cocaine and other drug use, trauma and extreme stress are considered as some of the risk factors. Typical signs and symptoms include vaginal bleeding, uterine contractions, and fetal distress. Treatment depends on the severity and extent of the disease. Initial resuscitation is required to stabilize the affected individual. Vaginal or emergent cesarian section may be needed to treat this condition.
