Placental examination was carried out in 128 consecutive cases of idiopathic intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) at term and the findings were compared with those of 179 gestational age-matched cases with normal growth. Mean pregnancy weight and mean maternal weight gain during pregnancy of IUGR cases were both significantly lower than for non-IUGR(More)
Microscopic features of placentas from 539 consecutive preterm deliveries and 214 term deliveries were compared. The presence of either umbilical or chorionic vasculitis was identified in 38% of the cases at 22 to 28 weeks' gestation, in 32% of the cases at 29 to 32 weeks' gestation, in 13% of the cases at 33 to 36 weeks' gestation, and in 10% of the cases(More)
The present study of 466 consecutive liveborn preterm singleton deliveries included 238 cases of spontaneous preterm labor and delivery, 175 cases with premature rupture of membranes, 13 cases of nonhypertensive abruption, 18 cases of preeclampsia, and 22 cases of placenta previa. Placental infarction, chronic villitis, and decidual pathologic processes(More)
The relationships among umbilical artery velocimetry, fetal biophysical profile, and placental inflammation in 44 consecutive patients with preterm premature rupture of the membranes were determined. All patients were followed up with daily fetal biophysical profiles and systolic/diastolic ratios. After delivery, placental pathologic examination for(More)
