CONCLUSIONS

All women over 30 years old, with one or more previous C-sections, anterior placenta and male fetus should be carefully monitored prenatally, as they may have a higher chance to aquire placenta previa and placenta acreta or percreta. It is necessary to consult the pregnant woman as soon as the pregnancy is confirmed. Early recognition and proper monitoring could minimize the possibility of a poor outcome. Considering a part of the findings of the current study, which are reminiscent of an underlying genetic basis of placenta previa, future research is required to elucidate a possible genetic and/or environmental contribution to risk.
