It has been hypothesised that thrombophilic disorders cause thrombosis of the utero-placental vasculature (spiral arteries and intervillous space) due to an increased haemostatic response.
Maternal blood bathes the chorionic villi within the intervillous space, delivering nutrients and oxygen, and removes nutrient-depleted blood via maternal veins.
The extracellular matrix of chorionic villi can be decreased, and the villous cores, thus, as pale as the intervillous space (Figure 1, F).
