Abstract

(Abstracted from Am J Obstet Gynecol 2018;218:483–489)

Impaired placentation in the first 16 weeks of pregnancy is associated with increased risk of subsequent development of preeclampsia, birth of small-for-gestational-age (SGA) neonates, and placental abruption. Previous studies reported that prophylactic use of aspirin reduces the risk of preeclampsia and SGA neonates with no significant effect on placental abruption.
