Velamentous insertion of the umbilical cord, with a reported incidence of 1% in singleton pregnancies, has been associated with several obstetric complications including fetal growth restriction, prematurity, congenital anomalies, low Apgar scores, fetal bleeding and retained placenta. The aim of this study was to determine the feasibility of identifying velamentous insertion of the umbilical cord during routine obstetric ultrasound. 
Velamentous insertion of the umbilical cord: intrapartum diagnosis
A report of velamentous insertion of the umbilical cord diagnosed during a normal twin delivery, a rare event with higher incidence in multiple pregnancies. Because it is generally asymptomatic, when
Prenatal Diagnosis of Velamentous Cord Insertion and Vasa Praevia using Ultrasound and Magnetic Resonance Imaging - A Case Report
TLDR
Prenatal diagnosis and early delivery by Caesarean section at 36 weeks improve fetal outcome and prenatal mortality is between 30%-100% from rupture of vessels and fetal exsanguination.
Velamentous cord insertion into the lower third of the uterus is associated with intrapartum fetal heart rate abnormalities
To evaluate the accuracy of sonographic identification of the site of umbilical cord insertion (CI) at 18–20 weeks of gestation, to compare the sensitivities for detection of a velamentous cord
Sonographic Diagnosis of Velamentous and Marginal Placental Cord Insertion
TLDR
The purpose of this pictorial review is to illustrate examples of velamentous and marginal placental cord insertion with an emphasis on how to differentiate their morphology using color Doppler US.
Ultrasound Assessment of the Umbilical Cord
TLDR
The protocol for ultrasound diagnosis and management of umbilical cord abnormalities, including abnor malities of cord insertion, hypercoiled cord, nuchal cord and fore­lying umbilICAL cord, is discussed considering current knowledge regarding the physiological and pathological aspects of these umbilicals.
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.

TLDR
It is important that in addition to sonographic location of the cord insertion into the placenta, as recommended by Sepulveda et al.1, the area over the cervix should be examined using sonography and color Doppler.
Velamentous cord insertion: significance of prenatal detection to predict perinatal complications.
Antenatal Diagnosis of Marginal and Velamentous Placental Cord Insertion and Pregnancy Outcomes.
TLDR
Antenatal diagnosis of velamentous placental cord insertion is associated with birth weight less than the 5th percentile, and this relationship persisted after controlling for smoking during pregnancy, diabetes, and hypertension.

To determine whether cord insertion can be consistently visualized and whether velamentous cord insertion and vasa previa can be consistently identified with color Doppler imaging during routine
Placental cord insertion visualization with prenatal ultrasonography.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that ultrasonography (either gray scale or color Doppler) is useful in identifying normal, marginal, and velamentous cord insertion and that marginal cord insertion may evolve into velamentOUS cord insertion as pregnancy progresses.
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.
Three-Dimensional Ultrasonographic Assessment of the Umbilical Cordduring the 2nd and 3rd Tri mesters of Pregnancy
TLDR
The results suggest that the new three-dimensional Ultrasonography has the potential to be a supplement to two-dimensional ultrasonography and might be useful in identifying abnormal umbilical cords in utero.
Vasa praevia: second trimester diagnosis using colour flow imaging
TLDR
A 34 year old woman with an unremarkable family and obstetric history underwent a routine, detailed second trimester scan, which revealed a structurally normal singleton fetus in breech presentation and biometry consistent with 19 weeks of gestation.
Sonographic evaluation of the placental cord insertion site.
TLDR
Targeted sonographic examination of the placental site of umbilical cord insertion will reveal abnormal placental cord insertions, although distinguishing the specific type of abnormal insertion may require the use of color Doppler imaging.
