Abstract

This chapter is a brief review of the current literature on nutrient transport across the intrauterine growth restricted placenta in human pregnancies in vivo. These studies, performed at the time of fetal blood sampling or elective cesarean section, show that the placenta plays a very important role in the pathophysiology of intrauterine growth restriction, clarifying the mechanisms of impaired nutrient placental transport. Further studies are needed though to open new perspectives in the clinical management and in the prevention of the disease.
