Pregnancy complications, particularly those associated with placental dysfunction, occur more frequently in primiparous than multiparous women. This difference may be a consequence of improved trophoblastic invasion, and as a result improved placental function in multiparous pregnancy. Placental dysfunction in cases of fetal growth restriction may be identified by ultrasound assessment ...
