High risk pregnancies are a small segment of the obstetric population that produces the majority of maternal and infant mortality and morbidity. Upto 40% of high risk mothers experience placental damage. The pathological changes in the Placenta are not by large specific to a particular disorder and therefore a variety of disorders may show similar changes. This study is an attempt has been made to correlate various placental villous changes to the fetal outcome in normal and specific high risk pregnancies.
Aims and Objectives: To study the morphological and histological changes of placenta in normal and high risk pregnancies and effect of pregnancy outcome.
Materials and Methods: This study was done in Department of Pathology Bidar institute of medical sciences Bidar Karnataka.
The study was done from Oct 2020 to March 2021.
It is a prospective study of morphology and histology of placenta in randomly selected normal and specific high risk pregnancies and its correlation with fetal outcome.
The study was done in 60 patients.
Results: There was no significant correlation with calcification, other morphological features such as both the type of placenta, septal cyst, true knot, with fetal outcome.
Conclusion: Days may not be for off when a definite link can be proved in a very positive way.
