Placental Position At 25 Weeks’ Gestation?
Good evening Today I am a new doctor, and the results of the ultrasound have information about the placenta: TOTAL, Maturation: GRADE 1, Amount: 1 What do you mean? Please explain, and fair as that? What do I need to do so that the placenta is normal? Thank you
Ultrasound or ultrasonography is a diagnostic test to determine the image of certain body parts. This examination can help the doctor to diagnose a condition or just to find out the general condition of the body. Ultrasound examination is one of the safest examinations performed on pregnancy conditions and is relatively inexpensive so it is often the first choice.
The total placenta indicates that the placenta completely covers the birth canal. If this is the case, it is also called placenta previa totalis. While the degree of maturation indicates the level of maturity of the placenta. Grade 1 indicates the level of placental maturity around 18-29 weeks.
Placenta previa totalis is very dangerous so you should confirm this with the doctor who treats you to get advice that suits your conditions and needs. Take regular control and consult a doctor immediately if a complaint arises.
If indeed your condition is caused by placenta previa then your doctor will consider the risk of your pregnancy. If necessary, the doctor can recommend an early delivery procedure to avoid this dangerous risk.
