Color Doppler and gray scale sonography can be used prenatally to identify the location of the cord insertion into the placenta. The purposes of this paper were to (1) relate sonographic identification of placental cord insertion with placental pathology; (2) evaluate the possibility that a marginal cord insertion may evolve into a velamentous cord insertion; and (3) determine the frequency and factors affecting sonographic visualization of cord insertion. Our results show that the sonographic… 
Performance of ultrasound for the visualization of the placental cord insertion.
TLDR
Although the visualization of the PCI was lower with advancing gestational age, it remained high even into the late third trimester, and Ultrasound with color Doppler is also an excellent screening test for the diagnosis of VCI.
Clinically Relevant Prenatal Ultrasound Diagnosis of Umbilical Cord Pathology
TLDR
A new, clinically relevant classification of these umbilical cord anomalies is established by establishing a new, clinical relevant classification based on the pathological description and the neonatal outcome reported for each entity.

TLDR
The detection of a low lying umbilical cord insertion during the first-trimester ultrasound can help to predict an abnormal cord insertion at delivery particularly a velamentous cord insertion.
Sonographic Prenatal Diagnosis of Marginal Placental Cord Insertion
TLDR
A prenatal diagnosis of marginal placental cord insertion is not associated with increased risk of growth impairment or preterm delivery, and rates of birth weight below the 10th percentile and pre term delivery were not significantly different from those in the general population.
PLACENTAL CORD INSERTION ABNORMALITY, A CAUSE FOR ASSYMETRICAL IUGR WITH PIH
TLDR
A case of 32 yrs old women who presented with amennorrhoea for 8 months with history of previous first trimester abortion, found to be of 34 weeks gestational age, clinically, with velamentous insertion of the umbilical cord.
Antepartum Sonographic Identification of Velamentous Insertion of the Umbilical Cord via Color Doppler
TLDR
A woman in her early 40s, gravida 1, presented at 9 weeks’ gestation for prenatal care with a single intrauterine female fetus with a posterior placenta, adequate amniotic fluid volume, and a normal fetal echocardiography.

Velamentous cord insertion: significance of prenatal detection to predict perinatal complications.
Abnormal Placental Cord Insertion and Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes: Results from a Prospective Cohort Study
TLDR
Digital imaging analysis using ImageJ software mapped the surface of the placenta and provided objective measurement of PCI site, and abnormal PCIs were significantly associated with an increased risk of small for gestational age and low birth weight.
Velamentous Cord Insertion in a Singleton Pregnancy: An Obscure Cause of Emergency Cesarean—A Case Report
TLDR
The present case highlights the importance of the systematic assessment of the placental cord insertion site at routine obstetric ultrasound and the potential of identifying pregnancies with velamentous insertion and, therefore, those at risk for obstetric complications.

Clinical significance and sonographic diagnosis of velamentous umbilical cord insertion.
TLDR
Pregnancy outcomes in VCI patients with 77 singleton gestations were compared with a control group of 15,865 patients and, in contrast to the existing literature, multiparity and prior cesarean section deliveries were not increased in pregnancies with VCI.
Vascular anomalies of the umbilical cord: I. Obstetric implications.
TLDR
Among twins where only one had VIU most of the VIU-twins showed a comparable lower birth weight than the other twin, and none of the groups showed reduced placental weight when correlated with birth weight.
The Role of Velamentous Cord Insertion in the Etiology of Twin-Twin Transfusion Syndrome
TLDR
Velamentous cord insertions are more common in twin-twin transfusion syndrome pregnancies and may contribute to the development of profound disparity in fluid volume because the membranously inserted cord can be easily compressed, reducing blood flow to one twin.
DIAGNOSIS OF VASA PREVIA WITH TRANSVAGINAL AND COLOR FLOW DOPPLER ULTRASOUND
TLDR
This is the first case report of vasa previa not associated with a succenturiate lobe or bilobate placenta and in which the diagnosis was made using a combination of transvaginal ultrasonography and color flow Doppler ultrasound.
Vascular anomalies of the umbilical cord. II. Perinatal and pediatric implications.
TLDR
In both groups there was a high incidence of both intrauterine hypoxia and perinatal mortality among single live births without malformations, highest in the SUA-group.
