Abstract


Placenta accreta is a general term describes abnormal adherent placenta to the uterine wall. When the chorionic villi invade the myometrium, the term placenta increta is appropriate. Nowadays, it is one of the increasing causes of materno-fetal morbidities and mortality. The aim of this research was to evaluate density of decidual natural killer cells (dNK, CD56+(bright)) in decidua basalis in patients with placenta accreta.
