Placental hemorrhagic endovasculitis can occur only in placentas of livebirths (Figure): True or False?
This case-control study of livebirths with and without placental HEV was intended to assess the clinical relevance of this lesion in placentas of viable infants.
11) Cases were selected from livebirths with a placenta that exhibited HEV at or above a specified level of severity.
One hundred four placentas from livebirths with an HEV severity index of 4 or higher (cases) were matched as closely as possible by gestational age and time and place of birth with 104 placentas from livebirths without HEV (controls).
Among HEV-affected livebirths, the incidences of abnormal fetal heart rate tracings and fetal distress were significantly higher when HEV-affected placentas also exhibited these clustered capillary lesions (Table 6).
In addition to previously recognized neonatal and developmental abnormalities associated with placental HEV, data from this study of livebirths identifies additional HEV-associated clinical events that are detectable in the preparturient period.
