Many reports have shown a statistically significant relation between increased foetoplacental resistance, as estimated by either the resistance index or systolic-diastolic ratio (S/D), and the later development of either preeclampsia or Intra uterine growth retardation (IUGR).
However, this technique is frequently associated with hypotension which can cause nausea, vomiting and depressed foetoplacental circulation.
Vascular actions of insulin in the human placenta and umbilical cord vessels (hereafter referred as "foetoplacental vasculature") are of relevance since this vascular bed lacks innervation, and the control of the blood flux results from local release of vasoactive molecules [4, 7].
Inhibition of 11s-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, the foetoplacental barrier to maternal glucocorticoids, permanently programs amygdale GR mRNA expression and anxiety-like behavior in the offspring.
During pregnancy in mammalian maternal tissues, immuno-competent cells are in direct and intimate contact with trophoblast cells of the foetoplacental unit.
Ephedrine induced beta adrenergic stimulation of the foetus is a possible mechanism of foetal academic that does not involve the uteroplacental or foetoplacental circulations.
Maternal Hb versus uterine dynamics or other foetoplacental complex relations are subjects of further intensive research, which could explain such an association.
Induction of labour is the artificial initiation of labour before its spontaneous onset for the purpose of delivery of the foetoplacental unit using mechanical or pharmacologic methods.
Assessment of the umbilical artery Doppler velocimetry provides information on the blood perfusion of the foetoplacental unit.
The nutritional supply and the environment of the foetus are dependent on the function of the foetoplacental circulation.
As far as hypertension is considered, the main pathophysiology in preeclampsia and foetal growth restriction is impaired uteroplacental and foetoplacental circulation respectively.
