Product Overview

The role of the placental bed in normal pregnancy and its complications has been intensively Investigated for 50 years. It is now recognized that disorders of the maternal-fetal interface in humans are implicated in a broad range of pathologic conditions, including spontaneous abortion, preterm labor, preterm premature rupture of membranes, pre-eclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction, abruptio placentae, and fetal death.Moreover, recent evidence indicates that these disorders have the potential to reprogram the endocrine, metabolic, vascular, and immune responses of the human fetus, and predispose to adult diseases.

The aim of the book is to inform the reader about the exciting developments in the study of the placental bed as well as the novel approaches to the assessment of this unique tissue interface and its implications for the diagnosis and treatment of complications of pregnancy. This book will be a resource to those intersted in clinical obstetrics, maternal-fetal medicine, perinatal pathology, neonatology, and reproductive medicine. Those interested in imaging of the maternal-fetal circulation or its interrogation with Doppler would also benefit from the information presented.
