MCHRI Seminar Series: Too Attached: When Mom and Baby are Inseparable

May 06, 2019 (Mon) | 12:00 PM -1:00 PM
300 Pasteur Drive : Stanford, CA

The placenta exists only during pregnancy, interacts continuously with the mother and fetus, and is central to fetal development, growth, and maintenance of a healthy pregnancy. Yet when the placenta invades too deeply into the uterus and will not separate after delivery, otherwise known as placenta accreta, this transient organ can have deadly maternal consequences. Dr. Deirdre Lyell will discuss placenta accreta—what it is, the risks involved, identification, and necessary approaches to patient care to maximize chances for a safe delivery—while Dr. Julie Baker will discuss her laboratory’s work toward identifying an accreta signal in maternal serum, and underlying mechanisms for this disease. Both will discuss their collaboration.
