Laminar necrosis of placental membranes (LN), a band of coagulative necrosis at the choriodecidual interphase, is a histologic lesion of unclear pathogenesis that has been reported in placentas from preeclampsia, preterm premature rupture of membranes, and preterm abruption. To better explore other possible correlations of LN, we performed a retrospective case-control study in which data on pregnancy risks and outcomes, neonate conditions, and placental gross, routine microscopic, and selected… CONTINUE READING
