placenta: an incidental finding," Journal of Case Reports and Images in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, vol.
The following gross placental features were considered abnormal: placental weight < 5th percentile for gestational age , single umbilical artery, marginal or velamentous cord insertion, bilobed or succenturiate placenta, and circummarginate or circumvallate placenta.
* includes succenturiate lobe, circummarginate, or circumvallate membrane insertion.
The succenturiate placenta is a morphological abnormality, one or more small accessory lobes connected to the main part of the placenta by blood vessels.!1!
After delivery of the baby, we found succenturiate lobe of the placenta occupying lower uterine segment with vessels running across the membrane (Fig.
The term succenturiate is derived from Latin word "succenturio" meaning "to substitute." Succenturiate lobes of the placenta result from focal areas of non-involution of the chorionic laeve.

Baby A had a velamentous cord insertion, and baby B had a succenturiate
lobe and a TUCK.
He then reminds you to look at the placenta to ensure that a big chunk isn't missing (possible accreta) and that there isn't a large vessel torn off the edge, indicating a missing succenturiate
Risk factors for vasa praevia include placenta praevia, low lying placenta in the mid trimester, bilobed placenta, succenturiate
lobe, Velamentous cord insertion detected at the time of routine morphology ultrasound, IVF pregnancy, multiple pregnancies.
Placenta with morphological variations in size and shape like lobed placenta, succenturiate
lobe, placenta membranacea and circumvallate placentas.
