Objective: To review the agreement of published standards on placental weights (PW) and fetal–placental (F/P) ratios, examine factors contributing to PW and ask whether aberrant placental weight is associated with adverse neurologic outcome. Methods: We conducted a literature search for standards of PW, F/P ratio and the relationship of PW to perinatal death, neonatal encephalopathy or cerebral palsy. We reviewed 17 studies of normative PW and 10 of F/P ratios. Since 1990, seven studies… Expand

TLDR
The average weights of membranes and cord in term placentas were reported to correlate these weights with common placental pathologies and to consider the effects of meconium, fetal and maternal vascular malperfusion, and intrauterine growth restriction on membrane and cord weights when estimating the trimmed placental disc weight. Expand
Placental weights from normal deliveries in Ireland
TLDR
The weight of the placenta is one of several measurements that are easy to acquire, and when recorded in a systematic fashion, provide information not just on an individual, but also on a population basis. Expand
Placental pathology and neurological morbidity in preterm infants during the first two weeks after birth.
TLDR
This study indicated that placental lesions were not associated with infants' neurological condition as measured by the quality of their general movements during the first two weeks after birth. Expand
Placental lesions and outcome in preterm born children: the relation between placental lesions, neonatal morbidity and neurological development
TLDR
The results of this thesis indicate that placental lesions are part of the pathophysiological pathway of adverse short term and long term outcomes. Expand
Chorioamnionitis and cerebral palsy: lessons from a patient registry.
TLDR
Histological chorioamnionitis was a frequent pathological finding in children with cerebral palsy born prematurely, with larger placentas relative to gestation and birth weight, and future case control studies are needed to shed light on the role of inflammatory placental findings in pregnancy outcomes. Expand
Cerebral palsy: phenotypes and risk factors in term singletons born small for gestational age.
TLDR
Children with CP born SGA have different clinical factors and phenotypic profiles than other children with CP, and differences support the hypothesis of antenatal and perinatal causes of CP in childrenBorn SGA. Expand
Sonographic assessment of placental location: a mere notional description or an important key to improve both pregnancy and perinatal obstetrical care? A large cohort study.
TLDR
Understanding of the role that PL plays in influencing the incidence of certain maternal-fetal conditions may assist Clinicians in improving perinatal maternal/fetal outcomes. Expand
Placental weight and placental weight to birthweight ratio in relation to Apgar score at birth: a population study of 522 360 singleton pregnancies
TLDR
To study whether placental weight or placental Weight to birthweight ratio are associated with Apgar score in the newborn 5 min after birth, a large number of cases with high Apgar scores have been reported on the day of birth. Expand
Association of placental weight with cerebral palsy: population‐based cohort study in Norway
TLDR
To study the risk of cerebral palsy associated with placental weight, and also with placential weight/birthweight ratio and placentalWeight/birth length ratio, a large number of children are born with atypical placental weights. Expand
The role of morphology in mathematical models of placental gas exchange.
TLDR
The state of the art of respiratory gas exchange placenta modeling is presented and the influence of the morphology description on model predictions is demonstrated and demonstrated. Expand

Do placental weights have clinical significance?
TLDR
Overweight placentas were associated with the following neonatal evidences of acute antenatal hypoxia: low Apgar scores, the respiratory distress syndrome, neurologic abnormalities, and neonatal death. Expand
Reference values for the weight of freshly delivered term placentas and for placental weight-birth weight ratios.
BACKGROUND There is evidence for a correlation between placental weight and future chronic disease, notably hypertension and diabetes. However, there are no reference scales for placentas that areExpand
Relationship of fetal and placental weight in human beings: fetal/placental weight ratios at various gestational ages and birth weight distributions.
TLDR
A wide range of placental weight and f/p ratios existed within all three infant birth weight groups, and infants with F/P ratios of greater than 10.00 had significantly higher risks of an Apgar score of less than 6.00. Expand
Contribution of the umbilical cord and membranes to untrimmed placental weight.
TLDR
In a sample of 50 neonates born in Southampton, placentae of liveborn singletons were weighed three times; after removing any obvious blood clots, after cutting the umbilical cord, and after stripping both the foetal and maternal membranes. Expand
Placental weight and birth characteristics of healthy singleton newborns.
TLDR
It is indicated that PW has a significant role in fetal growth in terms of weight, body length, and cord length and has nosignificant role in the presence of meconium-stained amniotic fluid or a nuchal cord in healthy neonates. Expand
Birth weight-length ratios, ponderal indexes, placental weights, and birth weight-placenta ratios in a large population.
TLDR
All indexes were gestational age dependent, but ponderal index and BW/placenta ratios do not increase beyond 40 weeks' gestation, and interpretation of these indexes should be specific for ethnicity, gender, and manner of placental preparation. Expand

TLDR
Normal placental weights have increased over the last decades and this may correlate with increasing maternal obesity, and further studies with larger populations are needed to confirm these findings. Expand
THE WEIGHT OF THE PLACENTA IN RELATION TO BIRTHWEIGHT
TLDR
The analysis of birthweights was based on the records of 52,004 legitimate, single births in the City of Aberdeen during the years 1948-64, and it is suggested that it would be profitable to go back to the original case records in order to obtain more detailed information. Expand
Placental pathology in asphyxiated newborns meeting the criteria for therapeutic hypothermia.
TLDR
Therapeutic hypothermia may not be effective in asphyxiated newborns whose placentas show evidence of chorioamnionitis with fetal vasculitis and chorionic plate meconium. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that weight gain of twin placenta appears to accelerate between 24 and 36 weeks but reaches a plateau after 37 weeks, whereas singleton placentas appear to gain weight more uniformly throughout gestation. Expand
