Two Dimensional Ultrasonographic Analysis of Placental Maturity and Its Correlation to Gestational Age and Maternal Parameters

The placenta, as a foetal organ, is exposed to the same stress and pressure as the foetus. As a result, any condition that affects the mother or the foetus has a major impact on the placenta. The goal of this study was to see how the placenta changes and grows as the foetus becomes older…

A Detailed Morphology and Histological Study of Placenta in Normal and Diabetic Pregnancies

Introduction: Many physiological alterations that enhance insulin resistance are generated by pregnancy in a diabetogenic situation. The placenta is a vital organ for the developing foetus, as well as the human body’s most accessible organ. Glucose tolerance has decreased by the third trimester of a typical pregnancy, although insulin levels in the blood have grown.…

Morphology and Morphometric Study of Human Placenta

Human placenta, materno-fetal organ, plays a vital role in maternal-fetal physiology with numerous responsibilities. It is not merely a passive barrier between the maternal and fetal circulations but has many physiological functions like implantation, recognition of maternal pregnancy, fetal protection from immune attacks, exchange of respiratory gases, metabolites, nutrients, and waste products as well as…

Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Study of Placenta in Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia is defined as new onset hypertension and albuminuria in previously normotensive pregnant women after 20 weeks of pregnancy. There is no cure; management is reliant on a structured antenatal surveillance programme and antihypertensives. Recent advances in immune histochemistry study of placenta have elucidated an increased Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) expression in various placental…
