Placental abruption is a very serious complication of the second half of pregnancy. This condition threatens the pregnant woman with serious bleeding which is often accompanied by syndrome of disseminated intravascular coagulopathy. The fetus is in danger of prematurity, hypoxia and often ends with intrauterine fetal death. Although the risk factors leading to the placental abruption are generally known, the etiology is usually unknown.
