  • placental
  • Abnormalities can range from anatomical associated with degree or site of inplantation, structure (as with twinning), to placental function, placento-maternal effects (pre-eclampsia, fetal erythroblastosis) and finally mechanical abnormalities associated with the placental (umbilical) cord. (edu.au)
  • In mammals is associated/incorporated with connecting stalk/placental cord fetal-maternal interface. (edu.au)
  • A transient placental source of serotonin for the fetal forebrain "Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine or 5-HT) is thought to regulate neurodevelopmental processes through maternal-fetal interactions that have long-term mental health implications. (edu.au)
  • This study reveals a new, direct role for placental metabolic pathways in modulating fetal brain development and indicates that maternal-placental-fetal interactions could underlie the pronounced impact of 5-HT on long-lasting mental health outcomes. (edu.au)
  • incidence
  • The incidence of non-immune hydrops is hard to calculate because many cases will result in fetal death and/or miscarriage of the baby, and some will get better on their own, especially when hydrops is the result of an infectious process. (chw.org)
  • fluid
  • It is defined as an abnormal collection of fluid in at least two different fetal organ spaces. (chw.org)
  • If there is abnormal or increased fluid collection in at least two fetal body spaces, the diagnosis can be made. (chw.org)
  • Disorders
  • Because heart anomalies or disorders are a common cause of non-immune hydrops, we highly recommend a fetal echocardiogram (a specialized ultrasound of the heart) to look for any structural abnormalities or abnormal heart rhythms. (chw.org)
  • bone
  • The clavicle is also one of the first fetal bone to contain marrow. (edu.au)
  • indicates
  • If your monitoring indicates that baby isn't moving enough, you can go to the hospital for electronic fetal monitoring . (healthtap.com)
