Marginal placental abruption is the most common type of placental abruption wherein a hematoma is located, as the name suggests, in the margin of the placenta and the blood collects below the chorionic membrane. It is most often seen in placentae that are partially implanted in the lower uterine segment or in placenta extrachorialis.
