ABSTRACT

Background: Abdominal drains are widely used in various surgical interventions in almost all surgical specialties. Case presentation: In this case report, a 33-year-old G3P2, GA, 34 weeks with placenta accreta, underwent an uneventful cesarean section with uterine preservation and bilateral uterine artery ligation. Due to mildly observed oozing from the surgical site, an abdominal drain was inserted as a common practice in many similar surgical interventions. On the second postoperative day, the patient drained a small but sufficient amount for drain removal. Removal was attempted but was unsuccessful. Due to evidence of entrapment, most likely at the abdominal wall, a decision was made to remove the drain under anesthesia. Conclusion: In this case report, we share the benefits of laparoscopy and highlight its feasibility.

Keywords:
Retained abdominal drain, laparoscope, postoperative, placenta accreta.
