The "Great Obstetrical Syndromes" are associated with disorders of deep placentation.
TLDR
Criteria for the classification of defective deep placentation into 3 types is proposed based on the degree of restriction of remodeling and the presence of obstructive lesions in the myometrial segment of the spiral arteries. Expand
Uteroplacental arterial changes related to interstitial trophoblast migration in early human pregnancy.
TLDR
Findings indicate that migratory interstitial cytotrophoblast probably has a role to play in the preparation of the myometrial segments of the uteroplacental arteries for the second wave of endovascular trophoblast migration that occurs in the second trimester of human pregnancy. Expand
Decidualization of the human endometrium: mechanisms, functions, and clinical perspectives.
TLDR
In humans, decidualization of the stromal compartment occurs in the mid-luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, independently of pregnancy, raising the possibility that biochemical analysis of timed endometrial biopsy samples taken in a nonconception cycle could be informative of subsequent pregnancy outcome. Expand
Inadequate maternal vascular response to placentation in pregnancies complicated by pre-eclampsia and by small-for-gestational age infants.
TLDR
An examination of the maternal vascular response to placentation shows that physiological changes in the placental bed normally extend from the decidua into the inner myometrium, pointing to a defect in the normal interaction between migratory trophoblast and maternal uterine tissues in pre-eclampsia and in SGA. Expand
The physiological response of the vessels of the placental bed to normal pregnancy.
The myometrial junctional zone spiral arteries in normal and abnormal pregnancies: a review of the literature.
TLDR
The mechanisms that control decidualization and subsequent trophoblast invasion in normal and abnormal pregnancies are examined and the possibility that disruption of the decidial process in the secretory phase of the menstrual cycle triggers a cascade of events resulting in failed deep placentation is explored. Expand
Inadequate maternal vascular response to placentation in pregnancies complicated by pre‐eclampsia and by small‐for‐gestational age infants
TLDR
Findings point to a defect in the normal interaction between migratory trophoblast and maternal uterine tissues in pre‐eclampsia and in SGA, a feature not seen beyond the second trimester in normal pregnancy. Expand
Endometriosis is a risk factor for spontaneous hemoperitoneum during pregnancy.
TLDR
Emerging evidence suggests that pelvic endometriosis may play an important role in the pathogenesis of spontaneous hemoperitoneum in pregnancy. Expand
Trophoblastic invasion of human decidua from 8 to 18 weeks of pregnancy.
TLDR
Trophoblastic invasion of the human decidua has been studied in 48 intact uteri with pregnancies ranging from 8 to 18 weeks after the last menstrual period to find out the role played by these cells in placentation. Expand
