 Synonyms & Historicals
Placenta .
Placentas .
Placentomes .
Placentoma, Normal .
Placentome .
A highly vascularized mammalian fetal-maternal organ and major site of transport of oxygen, nutrients, and fetal waste products. It includes a fetal portion (CHORIONIC VILLI) derived from TROPHOBLASTS and a maternal portion (DECIDUA) derived from the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The placenta produces an array of steroid, protein and peptide hormones (PLACENTAL HORMONES). .
Placentation .
Hemochorial Placental Development .
Hemochorial Placentation .
Placental Development .
Placental Development, Hemochorial .
Placentation, Hemochorial .
The development of the PLACENTA, a highly vascularized mammalian fetal-maternal organ and major site of transport of oxygen, nutrients, and fetal waste products between mother and FETUS. The process begins at FERTILIZATION, through the development of CYTOTROPHOBLASTS and SYNCYTIOTROPHOBLASTS, the formation of CHORIONIC VILLI, to the progressive increase in BLOOD VESSELS to support the growing fetus. .
Pregnancy Proteins .
Proteins, Placental .
Proteins, Pregnancy .
Placental Proteins .
Pregnancy Zone Proteins .
PAAG 8632 .
Proteins produced by organs of the mother or the PLACENTA during PREGNANCY. These proteins may be pregnancy-specific (present only during pregnancy) or pregnancy-associated (present during pregnancy or under other conditions such as hormone therapy or certain malignancies.) .

Placental Disease .
Pathological processes or abnormal functions of the PLACENTA. .
Placenta Previa .
Placenta Praevia .
Abnormal placentation in which the PLACENTA implants in the lower segment of the UTERUS (the zone of dilation) and may cover part or all of the opening of the CERVIX. It is often associated with serious antepartum bleeding and PREMATURE LABOR. .
