Question Regarding Placental Abruption

Patient : Hello, I hope someone can help me. My sister who is nine weeks pregnant and in her late twenties went into the hospital today after some light bleeding accompanied by a blood clot. Her blood pressure is fine, as was the baby's heartbeat. After the sonogram, she was told she had a "240 degree rupture" between the placenta and the uterus. There wasn't an OBGYN on call but the doctor available ordered bed rest at home. Can someone please explain the significance of this "240 degree rupture" and give some insight on the possible outcome of this pregnancy based on previous medical experience?
Symptoms:  Bleeding, back pain
