A 34-year-old woman, G3P2, is seen in consultation by the Obstetric Anesthesia Service at 32 weeks estimated gestational age (EGA) prior to planned cesarean hysterectomy at 34 weeks EGA for placenta previa and accreta (L-1). The placenta appears to be invading the patient’s bladder, right rectus abdominis muscle, and possibly the colon. In general, the patient is in excellent health (L-2) and her two prior cesarean deliveries were performed under spinal anesthesia with no difficulties and with excellent postoperative pain control from neuraxial opioids.
