Histopathological examination of the placenta: key issues for pathologists and obstetricians

Gordijn, S. J.; Khong, T. Y.; Ellwood, David; Dahlstrom, Jane

Description

The placenta is often not submitted for histopathological examination and obstetricians may be sceptical of the value of the examination. This article looks at the reasons for histopathological assessment of the placenta, examines what clinical information should be provided to pathologists and reviews what information can be gained from this 'diary of the pregnancy', especially for explaining adverse outcomes and potentially guiding the management of future pregnancies.
