Abstract

Having a uterine scar places a woman at increased risk of complications, such as Cesarean scar pregnancy (CSP), uterine rupture, placenta previa, and placenta accreta, in subsequent pregnancies. We report a case of uterine rupture at 11 weeks of gestation in a woman with a previous Cesarean section. A 43-year-old woman with a history of abdominal myomectomy and Cesarean section had her pregnancy induced by in vitro fertilization with donor eggs. The exact location of the gestational sac was identified on her first day of hospitalization, and her pregnancy was suspected to be a CSP. The following day, the patient complained of sudden lower abdominal pain. A uterine scar rupture was diagnosed, and an emergency surgery was required. It may be that first-trimester screening could allow the early recognition of patients at risk for these perinatal complications.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
