She had been previously diagnosed with an anterior placenta previa. A placenta percreta with bladder invasion was confirmed on cystoscopy. The patient underwent a successful cesarean hysterectomy using the argon beam coagulator.Argon beam coagulation may successfully help manage placenta percreta with bladder invasion while minimizing blood loss.
