INTRODUCTION It has been postulated that reduced placental perfusion as a result of abnormal placental implantation is the initiating event that leads to the maternal symptoms of preeclampsia. To be able to directly measure blood flow and perfusion in the placenta in experimental models of preeclampsia would provide valuable insight into the structural… CONTINUE READING
