The relationship of placental grade to fetal size and growth at term.
Among 246 term patients undergoing ultrasonic evaluation within 1 week of delivery, a grade-three placenta was found in 39.4%. Advanced placental maturity was not associated with altered fetal growth rates or an increase in small- or large-for-gestational infants. At term, advanced placental maturity is not associated with aberrant fetal growth.
