Abnormal invasive placenta (AIP) causes significant maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. With the increasing incidence of cesarean delivery, this condition is dramatically more common in the last 20 years. Advances in grayscale and Doppler ultrasound have facilitated prenatal diagnosis of abnormal placentation to allow the development of multidisciplinary management plans. Outcomes are improved when delivery is accomplished in centers with multidisciplinary expertise and experience in the care of AIP. This article highlights the desired features for developing and managing a multidisciplinary team dedicated to the treatment of AIP in center of excellence.
