  1. Data are n (%), mean ± mean standard error, or median with [range]
  2. aInconclusive pathology in two cases: 1) extensive degree of post-embolization myometrial infarction significantly hampered ability to recognize infiltrating chorionic villi and 2) changes in anterior myometrium may be consistent with prior placental involvement; however no retained placental identified
