Abstract

The College of American Pathologists (CAP) established a revised set of recommendations for placental evaluation in 1997. In review of the literature and anecdotally, there is discrepancy regarding placental submission to pathology. We evaluated adherence to CAP guidelines for placental pathology and clinical utility of the results.
