Is The Danger Of The Placenta In Grade II Corpus Posterius?
Good night I am 29 weeks pregnant and I want to ask Placenta in Grade II corpus posterius what does that mean ?? Is it dangerous for pregnant women?
Hello Nabilah, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
The placenta is the connecting organ of the mother and fetus during pregnancy. Through the placenta there is an exchange of nutrients, oxygenation and waste (excretion) between the mother and fetus. The placenta needs to be routinely evaluated, both its location, depth and maturity during pregnancy, with ultrasound. The location of the placenta can be in the anterior corpus (front uterine wall), posterior corpus (back uterine wall) as in the Sister's question, fundus (uterine crest), where all these positions are normal and harmless. The thing that needs attention is if the location of the placenta is too below or to cover the birth canal (placenta previa). While the grading in question is the grade of placental maturity, as seen from the ultrasound echogeneity and calcification in the placenta, placenta grade 1 is normal at 18-29 weeks gestation, grade 2: 30-38 weeks, grade 3: more than equal to 39 weeks.
Please note that the placenta can move locations slowly until the age of 32-34 weeks of pregnancy (where the gestational age formed so many segments below the uterus), so keep control every month / according to doctor's advice / if there are complaints.
