Placental hydropic change seen here in the chorionic villi is accompanied by increased fetal erythroblasts and nucleated RBCs in fetal vessels in villi at the upper left. These changes can accompany any cause for fetal anemia, whether immune (erythroblastosis fetalis from Rh. . Trophoblasts are derived from the conceptus, i.e. not maternal. Part of the trophoblast forms chorionic villi. Tumours arising from the trophoblast are dealt with in gestational trophoblastic disease Chorionic Villi Histology Chorionic villi are rich in capillaries and connective tissues that connects the fetus to blood of mother. The cells involved in the connective tissues are known as fibroblasts. Some macrophages are also present in the chorionic villi and these macrophages are known as hofbauer cells
This study examines histomorphometric features in chorionic villi obtained by chorionic villus sampling (CVS) at 11-14 weeks of gestation from 124 ongoing pregnancies (38 with trisomy 21, 14 with trisomy 18, 11 with trisomy 13 and 61 chromosomally normal controls). In the trisomy 21 group there was Tutorial contains images and text for pathology education Here is the microscopic appearance of the placental chorionic villi. The spaces between the villi are filled with maternal blood, with gas and nutrient exchange taking place across the cytotrophoblast and syncytiotrophoblast layers on the surface of villi to fetal vessels within villi The chorionic plate (embryonic surface) is differentiated from the decidua (maternal surface) by the presence of blood vessels passing between the chorionic plate and the villi and by the lack of the thick trophoblastic shell, fibrinoid, and decidua. 400 All chorionic villi extend into the intervillous space filled with maternal blood. Each villus, with a central core of embryonic connective tissue and embryonic blood vessels, is covered by an inner layer of cytotrophoblastic cells and an outer layer of syncytiotrophoblast. 400
Chorionic villi extend from the chorionic plate into the intervillous space, which is filled with maternal blood supplied by the spiral arteries. Therefore, the villi are the site of exchange of nutrients and wastes in the placenta. Like the chorionic plate, villi have a central core of connective tissue covered by the double-layered trophoblast . Meconium staining of placenta, gross.

In: Manual of Benirschke and Kaufmann's ous studies have documented a higher amount and depth of myometrial infiltration by the implantation site intermediate trophoblast compared with controls. In addition, we have anecdotally observed chorionic villi in myometrial vascular spaces in specimens with placenta creta. The aim of this study was to explore the prevalence and specificity of these features. Sixty-one postpartum. The villi are sectioned in many different planes, and their attachment to the chorionic plate may not be evident. Attached to the inner (fetal) surface of the chorionic plate is the amnion, consisting of an inner squamous amniotic epithelium and an outer layer of avascular mesoderm
Chorionic villi are vital in pregnancy from a histomorphologic perspective and are, by definition, products of conception. Placenta The placenta is a fetally derived organ that connects the developing fetus to the uterine wall to allow nutrient uptake, waste elimination, and gas exchange via the mother's blood supply Decidualized endometrium is endometrium with changes due to progestins. It is a physiological response seen in pregnancy.. Non-physiological changes are referred to by some as pseudodecidualization or pseudodecidualized endometrium.. Decidua and decidualization redirect to this article.. Contexts. Decidualization may be seen in a number of contexts Of these, 881/925 (95.2%) were positive for the presence of chorionic villi on histological examination. Patients with negative histology had a lower median gestational age, smaller ectopic pregnancies and lower serum human chorionic gonadotrophin levels Its possible to draw conclusions through the combination of a small amount of histological findings on chorionic villi to explain the kind of aneuploidy. Among 968 early spontaneous abortions 18.3% were defined as genetically caused by histological examination. 87.6% are probably trisomies, 7.3% polyploidies. 5.1% were diagnosed as complete. intermediate villi are normally no longer present after 24 weeks of pregnancy. In a mature placenta the main stem of the villous tree (stem or anchoring villus) is connected with the chorionic plate and consists of dense fibrous tissue with large arteries and veins with a clearly recognisable muscular layer
The chorionic villi are the main fetal part and functional unit of placenta. In this study we examined various pathological changes in chorionic villi in 64 cases of spontaneous abortion specimens. These included hydropic change, numbers of vessels, patency of vessels, stromal fibrosis, fibrinoid degeneration and Hofbauer macrophages Female Reproductive System.

[Histological observations on the chorionic villi of the diabetic placenta]. [Article in Italian] Laureti E. The diabetic woman's placenta does not present a uniform, specific pattern of abnormality. However the most prominent features are as follows: 1) Only in scattered areas of diabetic villi there is evidence of enlarged domains of PAS. Thrombotic lesions occurring in the absence of other placental pathology most often involve the chorionic or large fetal stem vessels but can occur at any level of the villous tree. In preterm infants, acute inflammatory thrombi in the amniotic-surface side of the chorionic vessel may be the most common cause of placental vascular thrombosis Hydatidiform mole. It is a type of gestational trophoblastic disease. Hydatidiform mole is a benign gestational trophoblastic disease which is a mass of swollen, cystically dilated, chorionic villi, which appear grossly as grapelike structures. There are two types of Hydatidiform mole. 1. Complete hydatidiform mole. 2. Partial hydatidiform mole
The villi form finger-like extensions that are either anchoring chorionic villi attached to the maternal decidua or floating chorionic villi in maternal lacunae. The villi stages are ongoing as the placenta continues to grow through both the embryonic and fetal development. Placental villi stages: primary villi - secondary villi - tertiary villi The better-preserved specimens from experimentally induced abortions were utilized to define placental changes more precisely. Placentitis was identified in all 18 experimentally induced abortions and was observed most consistently in the chorionic villus stroma (100%), often accompanied by suppurative surface exudate (89%) One of the morphologic features of chorionic villi is their vascularity, which can be evaluated for diagnostic purposes as the number of vascular profiles per chorionic villus, the normal values ranging from 2 to 6 per terminal villus 1 and larger numbers defined as hypervascularity. Extreme villous hypervascularity is known as chorangiosis, the term introduced by Altshuler 2 30 years ago and.
Placenta The human placenta is composed of both maternal and fetal tissues. Visible in this section are the decidua basalis, which is derived from the maternal endometrial lining, and the chorionic villi, which emerge from the chorion that surrounds the embryo Inspect any found fetal tissue for gross anomalies.

The biopsy of chorionic villi (BCV) has by now been applied in approximately 20,000 pregnant women world-wide in prenatal diagnosis. The first experience in the Federal Republic of Germany was gained in the centres supported by the Federal Ministry for Research and Technology RESULTS: Histology showed villous papyraceous (sclerosed and mummified chorionic villi) in a background of scanty atrophic endometrium. CONCLUSION: Tamoxifen has dual estrogenic and antiestrogenic effects; the estrogenic effects have been associated with ovulation induction in premenopausal women CHORIONIC VILLUS 24. VILLI- HISTOLOGY The histologic variations in placental architecture are largely dependent on the developmental state at which observations are made. The syncytiotrophoblast, the outer cell layer surrounding villi, possesses a brush border. Microvilli that constitute this border are felt to be involved in pinocytotic. Once the center cut was collected, the decidua and the chorionic plate were removed from the remaining placenta. From each cotyledon, pieces of decidua, chorionic plate, and chorionic villi were collected into two different tubes-one with RNAlater for vRNA isolation and one with 20%FBS/PBS for other virological assays Villitis of unknown etiology (VUE), also known as chronic villitis, is a placental injury.VUE is an inflammatory condition involving the chorionic villi (placental villi). VUE is a recurrent condition and can be associated with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). IUGR involves the poor growth of the foetus, stillbirth, miscarriage, and premature delivery

CVS results are available earlier in pregnancy than amniocentesis results, which provides privacy since the pregnancy has not begun to show and. Pathology. Characteristic feature is the identification of intimately related syncytiotrophoblasts and cytotrophoblasts without formation of definite placental type villi. Since choriocarcinomas include syncytiotrophoblasts (beta-HCG producing cells), they cause elevated blood levels of beta-human chorionic gonadotropin PATHOLOGY OF MOLAR PREGNANCY. Hydatidiform mole is a pathologic conceptus characterized by marked enlargement of the placental villi. For unknown reasons, the incidence of moles varies by race (9). Hydatidiform mole occurs at present in approximately 1 in 2000 pregnancies in Europe and the United States, but the rate approaches 1 in 500 in.
Chorionic villus sampling in the first trimester of pregnancy has the potential to become a major tool in the prenatal diagnosis and therapy of genetic disorders. Villus samples can be used for cytogenetic and biochemical studies as well as DNA analysis. However, little is known about the effects of chorionic villus sampling on a continuing pregnancy, or the long-term effects on the. three vessels per chorionic villi. Data collected on proformas and frequencies of different lesions were interpreted in the form of tables. Results Three percent of specimens showed no histological lesions in chorionic villi (Fig 1), while 97% showed some form of abnormality in histology (Table 1). 83% of chorionic villi had stromal fibrosis.
Pregnancy loss is a very common entity observed in obstetric practice.Most commonly it occurs in first trimester abortions. In this study we are doing histological and cytogenetic analysis of chorion villus tissue in first trimester abortion. This will help us to know whether the pregnancy loss was due to chromosomal abnormality. All the selected cases were in the age group 19-40 years Chorionic Villi: Collect 10 - 30 mg of chorionic villi, utilizing aspiration medium, containing sodium heparin. After assessment of the appropriate amount and quality of villi, transfer it to a sterile centrifuge tube with a transportation medium.

Chorionic villi are implanted on the myometrium without intervening decidua. placenta accreta. Myometrium is invaded by placental villous tissue Chorionic villi are the functional unit of the placenta which lies in between the basal plate or chorionic plate. After the interstitial implantation, the outer syncytiotrophoblastic cells spread, and soon the spaces develop in between the cells that are called lacunae, and the syncytium cells erode the maternal capillaries too and drain maternal blood into the lacunae that eventually develops. ADVERTISEMENTS: The chorio-allantoic placenta has been classified into various types on the basis of its morphology, arrangement of villi, histology and electron microscopy. A. Morphological Classification of Placenta: On the basis of closeness of foetal and maternal tissues, placentae may be of the following three types: 1.
