Dr. Girish V. Patil [16] | Dr. Shishirkumar [24]


Abstract: Placenta is a discoid organ which is transient and is responsible for the proper growth and survival of the developing fetus. According to Park (2009) the hypertensive disorders are responsible for 5-8 % of all maternal deaths. A wide variation in placental size has been reported in Pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) women. The study was done in 200 placentas, Out of the 200 placentas collected, 100 placentas were from uncomplicated full term deliveries and served as control group. Another 100 placentas were collected from PIH cases. The distribution of the weight of the placenta differs in normal and PIH cases. There is a reduction in the weight of the placenta in majority of PIH cases. The number of cotyledons decreased markedly in PIH cases and the attachment of umbilical cord is eccentric type in more number of PIH cases.
