Patient Testimonial

Extremely high-risk pregnancy managed by a multi-disciplinary team

Soon after Samina got pregnant with her baby daughter, it was clear that hers was going to be a high-risk pregnancy. The patient, along with her husband, met Dr. Bindhu K.S., Consultant, Gynaecology & Obstetrics, who advised her to get an ultrasound and a MRI exam, which confirmed that the patient was suffering from a rare condition known as Placenta Percreta. This serious condition causes the placenta to grow through the uterine wall and spreads to other organs, which can further result in massive blood-loss (often requiring blood transfusion), damage to the extended organs, infections and multi-organ failure, an extended stay in the ICU and a high mortality rate.
