Currently, Placenta Accreta Spectrum (PAS) has two treatment options: hysterectomy (completely removing the uterus) and partial myometrial resection (resecting the part of the uterus affected by this pathology).

The present study is a feasibility study of a multicenter, randomized controlled clinical trial to be carried out in 3 health institutions. Patients who meet the inclusion criteria, after signing the informed consent, will be taken to the surgical procedure and before the start of the procedure they will be randomized to one of the two interventions, hysterectomy or partial myometrial resection, intra-surgical clinical outcomes will be explored and a follow-up will be carried out during the immediate post-surgical period (72 hours), in 7 to 12 days and at 42 days postpartum.

A sample size of 60 patients is estimated among the 3 health institutions, with an approximate duration of the study of 24 months.
