  title={The fetal vascularisation of term human placental villi},
  author={Peter Kaufmann and Uwe Bruns and Rudolf Leiser and Michael Luckhardt and Elke Winterhager},
  journal={Anatomy and Embryology},
Vessel arrangement and vessel structure of the intermediate and terminal villi of 50 human normal term placentas have been studied by means of semithin histology, three-dimensional reconstruction of serial sections as well as scanning electron microscopy of vessel casts. The reliability of the methods applied has been checked by a morphometrical comparison of the luminal diameters obtained. The mature intermediate villi are characterized by the presence of 1 to 2 terminal arterioles as well as… CONTINUE READING
