What is the background of the project?
Placenta accreta is a potentially life-threatening obstetric condition that requires a multidisciplinary approach to management. The incidence of placenta accreta has increased and seems to parallel the increasing cesarean delivery rate. Women at greatest risk of placenta accreta are those who have myometrial damage caused by a previous cesarean delivery with either an anterior or posterior Placenta Previa (PP) overlying the uterine scar. PP is a morbid condition of increasing incidence. A previous history of Caesarean section might be associated with PP; however, there has been no correlation between other pelvic procedures to this condition, making screening even more difficult. After review of our cases and the current published data available, it is our opinion that early urologic consultation and a multidisciplinary approach to delivery and management are of utmost importance.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of this study is to estimate the incidence of placenta accreta/increta/percreta in Benha University Hospitals and to investigate and quantify the associated risk factors.
What techniques and methods are used?
For comparison purposes we defined two sub-groups: (i) all cases that ended with severe outcome and (ii) all patients who had a previous event of placenta accreta in one or more of their previous deliveries. We evaluated the potential risk factors leading to these conditions. The SPSS software package was used for statistical analysis.
What is the role of the student?
- The student will mainly observe
- The student will observe the practical experiments but will be highly involved in the analysis of the results
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
- Data collection: collecting medical history from cases (all patients who had a previous event of placenta accreta in one or more of their previous deliveries). - Students will be introduced to clinical examination and investigation for "placenta accreta” cases. - Students will observe the surgical management of such cases. - Students will take active part in statistical analysis of the result.
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
Yes, there will be gynecology and surgery lectures and courses on the subject matter.
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
- The student will prepare a poster
- The student will prepare a presentation
What skills are required of the student? Is there any special knowledge or a certain level of studies needed?
- History taking from gynecological patients. - Basic surgical skills.
Are there any legal limitations in the student’s involvement
No
