In this study 50 cases diagnosed with placenta accreta with age range of 18 to 40 years were selected. The diagnosis of placenta accreta was made on ultrasonography and all stages were included. Then these cases were delivered in the hospital and after delivery of the fetus, the placenta was retained in the body. Interval hysterectomy was labelled as yes where the uterus had to remove within one month of prior surgery. Results; In this study there were total 50 cases of placenta accreta. The mean age pf the participants was 27.31±3.89 years and mean duration of gestation was 34.41±2.78 weeks at delivery (table 01). Interval hysterectomy was done in 7 (14%) of the cases. Interval hysterectomy was done significantly high in cases those were multiparous where it was seen in 6 (18.18%) of the cases with p value of 0.03 (table 02).
