Normal Anatomy of the Placenta vs. Placental Abruption
Contrasts normal anatomy of the placenta with placental abruption (detached placenta). Shows normal attachment of the placenta to the uterine wall. Shows the umbilical artery and vein system with normal fetal-maternal circulation. Depicts uterus with placental abruption, with premature separation of the placenta from the uterine wall with hemorrhage (bleeding). Displays maternal-fetal circulation with oxygen starvation (hypoxia) of the fetus.
