Placental abnormalities play a crucial role in prenatal care. Close surveillance is frequently necessary if the latter are diagnosed. Not all of them can be diagnosed with ultrasound throughout the antepartum period. Adjuvant usage of color Doppler examination can frequently assist in identifying those abnormalities. Because the placenta plays a vital role in nutrient and gas exchange, hormone regulation and bloodstream flow, it makes sense that many placental abnormalities can result in growth restriction and poor fetal outcomes.
According to the kind of the abnormality and fetal growth, antenatal surveillance with non-stress testing might be necessary. It is also vital to consider placental abnormalities when planning delivery, as a number of these conditions are linked with greater rates of peripartum complications e.g. hemorrhage, retained placenta, and infection.
