  • A combination of acute and chronic placental lesions are more likely to be seen in NE
  • Defined histopathological criteria using the 2016 Amsterdam consensus document should be used whenever the placenta is assessed
  • Efficacy of therapeutic hypothermia may be influenced by antenatal placental factors
