Also presented are Placenta Accreta and Percreta; Ascending Infection - Acute Chorioamnionitis; Maternal Floor Infarction and Massive Perivillous Fibrin Deposition. Additionally, Umbilical Cord Pathology, Monozygotic Twinning, and Fetal Thrombotic Vasculopathy, Neonatal Stroke and other sequelae are discussed. Each of the topics presents abundant clinical photos and histology slides supporting diagnosis. Editor Rebecca Baergen, whose specialty areas are fetal pathology, placental pathology, gynecology and perinatal pathology, leads a group of authors who are experts in placental pathology, including her mentor and one of the pioneers in placental and perinatal pathology, Dr. Kurt Benirschke.

Power: The Evolution of the Human Placenta
By Michael Power
2012, 280 pages, $65 list
Starting with some of the earliest events that have influenced the path of placental evolution in mammals and progressing to the specifics of the human placenta, this book examines modern gestation within an evolutionary framework. Human beings are a successful species and our numbers have increased dramatically since our earliest days on Earth. However, human fetal development is fraught with poor outcomes for both the mother and fetus that appear to be, if not unique, far more common in humans than in other mammals. High rates of early pregnancy loss, nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, preeclampsia and related maternal hypertension, and preterm birth are rare or absent in other mammals yet not unusual in humans.
