Maternal cotyledons at birth predict blood pressure in childhood.

Abstract:

INTRODUCTION: A small placental surface at birth has been shown to be associated with the development of hypertension in later life. In this study we extend this observation by looking at the relationship between the number of placental cotyledons and blood pressure in childhood. Because the number of cotyledons is correlated with the surface area, we hypothesized that fewer cotyledons would be associated with higher blood pressure. METHODS: The Alspac study is a longitudinal study of 13,971 ...
