Chorangiosis does not occur in the postuterine pattern of placental injury in which villous hypovascularity is typically present.
Various intensity of axial and peripheral skeleton bones growth during both uterine and postuterine periods affects body proportions of the growing youngsters.
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).
Global (diffuse) placental hypoxia (preuterine, uterine, or postuterine) was histologically diagnosed based on placental maturation (heterogenous or homogenous), excessive syncytial knotting (granular or smudgy chromatin), amount of the extracellular matrix of the chorionic villi (increased or decreased), density of the villous cytotrophoblastic cells (increased or decreased), density of Hofbauer cells (increased or decreased), and villous vascularity (increased or decreased branching of capillaries).
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.
