The placenta may show various types of cystic structures, which can be broadly categorized into septal cysts, in which the cysts are located within placental tissue, and the more rarely encountered subchorionic, or true placental cysts, which are located under the fetal plate.
Subchorionic placental cyst: A cause of fetal growth retardation-ultrasound and color-flow Doppler diagnosis and follow-up.
SYDNEY--The presence of subchorionic bleeding around the gestational sac does not appear to increase the risk of miscarriage, according to data from a prospective observational study.
In a study of 1,115 women in early pregnancy, 142 (13%) had documented subchorionic hematoma.
8) In conditions associated with maternal hypoperfusion the placenta may show perivillous fibrinoid deposition, subchorionic
fibrinoid plaque, massive subchorial thrombosis, basal intervillous thrombus, intervillous lakes, retroplacental haematomas, maternal surface chorionic villous infarction and syncytial knots.
There were aneurysmally dilated vessels on the fetal surfaces of the placentas and dilated stem villi filled with clear gelatinous material in the subchorionic
, or perigestational, hemorrhage is present in approximately 20% of women presenting with a threatened abortion, (15) and is the most common cause of bleeding in normal IUPs, usually presenting in the late first trimester.
The finding of a subchorionic
hematoma, its size, or behavior does not carry with it an increased rate of spontaneous abortion or other adverse fetal outcomes," reported Dr.
One woman who had focal haemorrhage and vessels showing recent thrombosis was negative for all the thrombophilic markers studied and another who showed subchorionic
haemorrhage was negative for all the thrombophilic markers studied.
The placenta weighed 338 g and was significant for a subchorionic
chorangioma and multifocal fibrin deposits.
Even if those signs of nonviability are absent, prognosis for a normal pregnancy is poor if there's a large yolk sac (>5 mm), a slow embryonic heart rate, or subchorionic
hemorrhage, among other signs.
He noted that sonographic findings of subchorionic
hematoma increase the odds of pregnancy loss, especially if they are moderate to large in sire.
