Placenta

Velamentous cord insertion is the insertion of the umbilical cord into the membranes of the placenta before reaching the placental margin

and it occurs in 1.5% of term singleton placentas;

. Velamentous cord insertion is associated with preterm labor-delivery, low birth weight, fetal growth restriction, abnormal intrapartum fetal heart rate patterns, low APGAR scores at 1 and 5 minutes, neonatal deaths and placental abruption [2, 3].

Furcate umbilical cord insertion is the separation of umbilical vessels prior to their attachment into the placenta. It is a very rare entity with the risk of intrapartum hemorrhage

🎋. Placenta accreta is the invasion of the decidual surface of the myometrium with placental villi.
