This can also be referred to as the “afterbirth.” With accreta, the placenta is tightly attached to the uterine wall and does not separate naturally during delivery. This causes several complications for the baby and mother.Why is Accutane only available through a special restricted distribution program?
Because of Accutane’s teratogenicity and to minimize fetal exposure, Accutane is approved for marketing only under a special restricted distribution program approved by the Food and Drug Administration. This program is called iPLEDGE™. Accutane must only be prescribed by prescribers who are registered and activated with the iPLEDGE program.What are the treatment options for accreta?
Surgery is the most common and effective treatment for accreta. After the birth of the baby, this usually involves either the surgical removal of the placenta, or a hysterectomy to remove the uterus along with the accreta. The ovaries are almost always left in place if a hysterectomy is performed.
