Abstract: 

Premature birth (PB) is associated with placental insufficiency, which is confirmed in the morphological study of the placenta. Ultrasonic markers of placental abnormalities, often preceding PB, have been identified: changes in placental structure, premature ripening of the placenta, oligohydramnios, and fetal-placental circulation.
