  • Maternal floor infarction (also known as massive perivillous fibrin/fibrinoid deposition) is a rare and devastating pregnancy disorder associated with prematurity, fetal growth restriction, spontaneous abortion, and long-term neurologic impairment. Recurrence in multiple pregnancies is common. Little is known regarding either the pathophysiology or the management and treatment of patients at risk for recurrence in subsequent pregnancies.
