Placenta accreta/percreta is a serious cause of intractable post‐partum haemorrhage during caesarean section and a common cause of peripartum hysterectomy. In this case series, we evaluated the use of multiple 8 sutures as a novel procedure to preserve the uterus in these cases. Seven women with placenta accreta/percreta were initially managed with bilateral uterine artery ligation. The procedure was resorted to in cases that did not respond to ligation (five women). Women were followed up for up to 24 months to report complications.
