Retroplacental abruption is a type of placental abruption where placental tissue prematurely separates from the uterus and blood accumulates between the basal plate (maternal side of the placenta) and the myometrium 1. The result is a retroplacental hemorrhage.
The size of a retroplacental abruption predicts fetal outcome, with greater than 50% placental detachment and hematoma volume greater than 50 ml being associated with a poorer outcome 2.
