The postuterine (PU) (postplacental) pattern of chronic hypoxic placental injury is due to primary villous changes resulting in decreased intake of oxygen from the intervillous space, as in retained stillbirth (Figure 2, C), subsets of FGR (Figure 2, D) and preeclampsia, and fetal thrombotic vasculopathy (only focally) (13,38) (Figure 2, E).
Postuterine hypoxia features a homogenous placental maturity, increased smudgy syncytial knotting, increased extracellular matrix of the chorionic villi, and decreased villous cytotrophoblastic cells, Hofbauer cells, and villous vascularity (Figure 2).
Despite identifying and validating several histologic indicators of global maternal hypoperfusion, (25) the features of preuterine, uterine, and postuterine patterns of hypoxic placental injury are probably even less reproducible than focal hypoxic placental lesions because they are largely influenced by determination of placental maturity, and both accelerated and delayed maturity are associated with abnormal pregnancy outcome and poor fetal condition.
