What Does My Anomaly Scan Report Indicate?
Thanks for sharing your health concern with us.
I have gone through your query and would like to offer some information.
Retroplacental complex is composed of the maternal blood vessels, uterine muscle or myometrium and the basal layer of the decidua. The usual thickness is 9.5 mm. The sonographic appearance in the normal state is hypoechoic.
Prominent retroplacental complex is observed when the uterine musculature is under transient contraction, when there is some hemorrhage in which case the sonographic appearance is hyperechoic and with a myoma which can be detected during the sonogram.
In the current scenario, it is more likely to be a normal observation. Follow up with further sonograms is done for clarification. Please discuss with your consultant.
I do not think there is something to worry. I would suggest review, however.
Hope your query has been clarified. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help.
Thanks for writing back.
It is possible that the sonographic appearance can be due to the old hematoma. In case of fresh bleeding, the sonographic appearance is hyperechoic at first up to 48 hours, later isoechoic and becomes hypoechoic. In your case, there seems to be no fresh bleeding.
Hope this helps.
No obvious risk but needs follow up.
Thanks for writing again.
The sonographic appearance is of no immediate concern. Regular follow up is sufficient. As of now, no specific medication is needed.
Take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and maintain adequate hydration. Take rest for 8 hours during the night and 2 hours during the day, preferably in the left lateral position to help improve placental circulation.
1. No specific medication is needed. Except for regular follow up, no other special precautions are advised.
2. Growth of the fetus is affected if the blood supply is inhibited. This can be detected through sonogram. MRI and Doppler studies are also useful.
3. You do not have any risk when this is a normal finding.
Hope this helps.
