What is placental abruption?

The abruptio placentae, also known as placental abruption, consists of the early separation of the placenta from the internal wall of the uterus before delivery. Usually, this detachment occurs after the 20th week of pregnancy and causes vaginal bleeding, uterine pain, and hemorrhagic shock.

Placental abruption occurs suddenly and it is vitally important to treat it as soon as possible; otherwise, the lives of both mother and baby will be in danger.
