We present two cases of placenta accreta attended at the Teaching Territorial Hospital of Cardenas, with less than 48 hours of difference, confirmed by Pathologic Anatomy and a good evolution of the patients and their newborns. In one case we made a subtotal hysterectomy after abdominal cesarean indicated as: term pregnancy, labor, pelvic presentation, presumed previous placenta and anterior cesarean. In the other, we made a total hysterectomy after eutocic vaginal delivery because of the impossibility of manually extracting placenta and acute hemorrhage.
